The first egg of the 2021 nesting season for the NCTC bald eagle pair was laid at 2:42 pm on February 11.
This is about 6 days earlier than the first egg for 2020. We may see another egg coming in the next couple of days.
Both adults will now incubate the egg/s for the next 35-38 days, until hatching in mid-March. Look for the female to use her beak and roll the egg every hour, or so, to ensure even heating of the egg. Thanks to Deb Stecyk and the Bald Eagles 101 group for monitoring the nest and spotting the first egg!
