1 eaglet hatches, 1 more expected soon in southwest Florida

Date: 2021-12-27 17:23:49

One baby eagle broke through its shell on Monday morning in southwest Florida. Now, the parents are waiting for one more to hatch.

The mom and dad, Harriet and M-15, are well-known for those who follow the Dick Pritchett Real Estate Family Farm’s live camera. The parents have spent more than a month patiently taking turns guarding and incubating the eggs. 

On Sunday morning, a pip was spotted in one of the eggs. That’s the term for a small crack that signals hatching isn’t too far away.

It generally takes between 12 and 72 hours for a chick to emerge from its egg.
