The first of two expected baby bald eagles hatched Monday in Florida at the Dick Pritchett Real Estate family farm.
The parents, Harriet and her mate M15, have spent more than a month patiently taking turns guarding and incubating the eggs and hunting around their nest, and one of the eggs hatched around 12:45 pm on Monday, according to the farm.
The first egg was laid on November 20, with the second egg laid three days later. The average incubation period for bald eagles is 35 days, according to Southwest Florida Eagle Cam.
