“Egg Number Three!”

For the third consecutive year the eagles at the Norfiolk Botanical garden have laid a third egg. This is a testament to the richness of the habitat. With the freshwater of Lake Whitehurst adjacent to the Garden and the Chesapeake Bay nearby (not to mention ALL those tasty gulls), this pair have found the resources to support their remarkable production. The third egg was laid Friday Feb. 8th at 11:41 pm. A full week seperated the laying of the 1st and 3rd egg (just as last year). The parents will be busy once these eggs hatch, trying to provide enough food for three hungry mouths.
