PITTSBURGH (AP) - A third egg has been spotted in the Pittsburgh nest of a pair of bald eagles.

The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania says the third egg was spotted Saturday afternoon. The eagles laid the first egg more than a week ago and the second last Tuesday. The eggs typically hatch about 35 days after they are laid.

Two years ago, the pair raised three eaglets. But 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.
