“Egg Number 3!”

Just as the rain and sleet of another Northeaster began to turn to snow - a third egg was laid by the bald eagles at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Just after 12:29 pm the female laid what should be the final egg of this clutch. The video below shows some of her labor and a brief view of the eggs at 12:29:50 of the camera's time stamp.

The female is currently resting and keeping all three of her eggs warm and dry.
