NORFOLK  – There is now a third eagle egg at Norfolk Botanical Garden.

At first it was hidden by the snow, but on Friday morning just before 9 a.am., a third egg was confirmed.  Experts believe the egg was laid earlier in the week.

“We knew there was a good chance there was a third egg, but during conversations with Stephen Living at the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and Reese Lukei at the Center for Conservation Biology, we felt it was important to see all three eggs at once before confirming that she had indeed laid the egg.”

The eagle nest can be observed live daily on the ‘Eagle Cam,’ which is a partnership of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, Norfolk Botanical Garden, and WVEC.
