A weird scene: Mom eats a duck while standing atop Dad, who is incubating two eggs. The Duke Farms Bald Eagles are now on two eggs. The first arrived late Monday/early Tuesday, and the second arrived on Friday around 2:30 p.m., when the temperature was around 15 degrees.
Last year, the eagles had three eggs, three days apart, beginning on Feb. 17. Incubation is typically 35 days. Nothing is certain, especially in the wild.
Jim Wright's next weekly post on the Duke Farms eagles arrives Wednesday at 1 p.m. The topic, appropriately, will be all about eagle eggs.
