A third egg appeared in the nest around noon today! She laid her first egg on March 6th and her second on March 8th and then took four days off before producing her third egg. Usually eggs are laid 24-48 hours apart but there can be variations.

The eggs will begin developing as soon as incubation begins and the red-tails started incubating after the second egg. The first two eggs will likely hatch around the same time but the third egg will likely be 3-4 days behind. Keep watching...she may still drop a fourth!

As always, you can watch the KGW / Audubon Raptor Cam live here.
