Prior history for this pair, in addition to ground observations suggestive of egg laying,
it appears that Egg 2 arrived at Canonsburg Lake on March 8 at approximately 11:35am.
Hatchwatch: April 12
The Hatchwatch Clock counts up from the time the egg is laid.
Bald eagle eggs take 35 days to hatch on average.
First eggs may take longer as they are often not intensely incubated until the arrival of the second egg.
