Having laid her two eggs a couple of weeks ago, the mother bald eagle watches them closely to make sure they stay safe. The mother and father have been taking turns sitting on the eggs, making sure that they always remain warm and dry, particularly in the heavy amount of rain we have received as of late.
The first egg was laid on Jan. 3 and the second on Jan. 7. The incubation period typically lasts from 32 to 36 days. The anticipation of the hatching of the babies builds for the parents and the community alike.
