HUMBOLDT BAY- The female bald eagle nesting in Humboldt bay laid her first egg of the season under the full moon Wednesday night. The eagle is expected to lay up to three eggs this season that will hatch after 35 days.

Viewers watched the action in progress via the eagle cam. The pair have fledged 12 baby eaglets, including "Stormy" and "Kyle" last year. The eagles made the North Coast their home in 2006, the first to return in 40 years.
