The New Celebrity California Eaglet! Birth Announcement!
The first egg hatched a little after 4 p.m. on March 17! Mom, dad, and baby are all resting comfortably. Stay tuned.
The first egg was laid on February 6th, the second on February 9th and the third on February 13th. All the eggs were laid in the early evening. The eagles will continue to incubate the two remaining eggs until they hatch after about 35 days. Meanwhile, what do we call this newest Californian?
Pay attention when the eagles switch places during incubation. Their talons are very sharp and can easily damage the egg shell, so they carefully ball up their feet when they sit down on the eggs.
