Busy Week for the Bald Eagle Pair!

February 24, 2023 9:47 AM | Anonymous

The past week has been a busy one for the NCTC bald eagle pair!

  • Egg #1 was laid at 3:26 pm on Feb. 15, 2023
  • Egg # 2 was laid at 6:53 pm on Feb. 18, 2023

Less than an hour before the second egg was laid, another eagle tried to land on the nest but was repelled and chased off.

Both eagles remain on alert for nest takeover attempts; these attempts usually occur by breeding age females (4-5 years old) in search of nesting territory.

Male and female eagles take turns incubating eggs for 35-38 days before the hatch.

Watch for them to turn eggs with their beak about every hour!
