Two bald eagles from Southwest Florida are on their way to parenthood.
The eagles, named Harriet and M15, laid two eggs on November 22nd and 25th.
The average incubation period for eagle eggs is 35 days, meaning that the future parents are expecting their births between now and New Year’s Day.
Both Harriet and M15 are taking turns keeping their eggs warm at the 105-degree temperature required for proper development.
This will continue until the chicks begin to scratch and break out of their shells.
