The Raptor Resource Project has confirmed the “pip” of another egg in the Decorah eagles’ nest.

The small hole in the egg was discovered Thursday afternoon and is a sign the eaglet inside is trying to get out. It could take up to 24 hours for the eaglet to fully emerge.

The second egg was laid on February 26th. It usually takes about 35 to 39 days for an eagle egg to incubate. The other egg in the nest was laid March 2nd.

The first eaglet hatched Wednesday morning and Mom and Dad eagle have been seen feeding the new addition several times since the hatch. It appears they’ve been dining on a quail.
