In the Northeastern states it is the bald eagle breeding and nesting season. It is always a great experience to see the "changing of the guard". Both parents take turns sitting on the eggs. One eagle has been sitting on the eggs, the second just flew in, and they are doing a little adjusting before the one that has been sitting flies out. There have been eggs in this nest approximately 3 weeks. The eggs hatch at about 35 days.
