PITTSBURGH (AP) - A second egg has been spotted in the Pittsburgh nest of a pair of bald eagles who have returned after losing both of their eggs last year.

The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania says the second egg was laid shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday. The couple’s first egg was laid late Friday or early Saturday. The eggs typically hatch about 35 days after they are laid.

Last year, the eagles lost both eggs and then left the nest, prompting residents to place flowers and signs of encouragement at a memorial.

It’s the fourth year in Pittsburgh for the eagles nesting on a bluff above the Monongahela River in the Hays neighborhood. Ornithologists say they’re the first eagles to nest in the city in at least a century and a half.
