The primary eagle of the 12 months hatches in Pittsburgh’s Hays Bald Eagle Nest – WPXI

PITTSBURGH – The bald eagles in Pittsburgh’s Hays neighborhood welcomed their first eagle of 2021 early Tuesday morning.

The eagle hatched just after 3 a.m., the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania said.

According to the Audubon Society, 39 days have passed since the first egg was laid and 36 days since the second egg was laid. Bald eagle eggs typically take around 35 to 38 days to hatch.

A total of three eggs were laid by the Hays bald eagles this year.

Now that there is an eagle as well as an egg in the nest, an adult bald eagle will stay in the nest at all times, officials from the Audubon Society said. The hatched eagle remains under an adult for warmth while the remaining egg continues to be incubated by the adults.

The food is brought back to the nest by the adults and given to the eagle. The adults tear the food into small pieces and bend over to feed the eagle.
