A third bald eagle has hatched from its egg in Pittsburgh. The eaglet hatched from its egg to join two other eaglets in the Hays neighborhood of Pittsburgh. This new eaglet is the third and final egg in the nest. Two other eggs are expected to not hatch says the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. One egg was broken and another was deemed inviable.


Across the city in the Harmar community, another family of bald eagles welcomed two baby eagles to their family. The second baby eagle hatched on Tuesday shortly after 4 p.m.

Each of the parents will take turns keeping the baby eagles warm during the cold spell. Small fish have been brought back to the nest for the eaglets to start feeding. It takes about 24 hours before eaglets begin to eat.
