Canonsburg Lake HatchWatch Clock 2018
|CL3 Age||281 days 11 hours 57 minutes 39 seconds
On the morning of March 5, 2018 egg rolling behavior was observed so the time used to approximate the egg lay is March 4, 2018 at 11:59pm. At 11:00am on April 9, 2018 ground observer reported behavior consistent with a hatch. This would mean the hatch occurred after approximately 35 days 11 hours.
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.
