The pair's first egg was laid on Friday.

According to the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, it typically takes about 35 days for eggs to hatch.

The Audubon Society says an adult bald eagle will remain on the nest constantly to incubate the egg. The nest is never left unattended.

The eagles will roll the eggs to keep a constant temperature within.

There's typically a two- to four-day span in between laying eggs. The first egg of 2020 was laid on Feb. 13 and it hatched on March 21.
