We are all on a hatch watch now, as the eggs are expected to begin hatching sometime between the 23rd and the 25th. The first sign will be a “pip,” a hole in the shell. When Mom gets up to shift or take a break, she has been listening carefully to the eggs, and has been softly talking to them. Really cute. If you haven’t watched in a while, click the Eaglecam tab and take a look.
The first hatch is expected March 23rd to 25th!
Excerpt: We are getting a lot of questions about eggs and hatching. It takes 35-37 days for Bald eagle eggs to hatch, 24-28 days for Canada goose eggs to hatch, and about 28 days for great horned owl eggs to hatch. Despite the differences in incubation times, very similar things happen in the eggs of all three species.
