DECORAH EAGLES: First Egg Hatch Is Near

eagle_eggs2

All eyes will be on the Decorah Eagles’ nest this week as anticipation builds over the first hatch of 2014.

The first egg was laid on February 23rd and the Raptor Resource Project, which operates the web camera trained on the nest, says that means it could hatch between April 1st and April 3rd.

Eagle eggs take from 35 to 39 days to hatch and the RRP says an extremely cold spring may have affected when the eggs hatch.

Once a pip hole has been created by the hatching eaglet it can take from 12 to 24 hours before the eaglet comes out of the shell.

The other two eggs were laid on February 26th and March 2nd.
