NORTH COAST – They are local celebrities with a national following and they’re faithfully caring for their latest egg.

The Humboldt Eagle cam showed the new egg that was laid just after 3 Tuesday afternoon. The mother usually lays 2 and sometimes 3 eggs a year. Another may come during the next 3 days and the eggs usually take around 35 days to incubate and hatch.

These two eagles have been here since 2006. A naming contest will be held once all the eggs have hatched. For more information and the eagle cams link, go to the Institute For Wildlife Studies at: www.iws.org
