There have been several inquiries as to when we can expect the NBG adults to begin egg laying. The best estimate we can make is to use their past egg laying dates as a guide. The first egg layed in 2006 was Feb 2, in 2007 it was Jan 31, in 2008 it was Feb 1, and 2009 it was Feb 10. In the photo above are two bald eagle eggs compared in size to a hardball.
