SWFL eagle eggs watched for imminent hatch; pip seen on one egg

The eggs of eagles Harriet and M15 might hatch Friday, as a pip was unmistakably spotted on one egg at 12:32 p.m.

Southwest Florida Eagle Cam reported on its Twitter account Friday morning that a pip might have formed on one egg from a hatchling pecking at the inside.

Harriet laid the eggs in her North Fort Myers nest on Dec. 16, 2020, and their eventual hatching (the incubation period for bald eagles is around 35 days) has been hotly anticipated. Eagle watchers were in further suspense after a possible owl attack Jan. 12, but the eggs were unharmed.
