Harriet, Southwest Florida’s famous bald eagle, has laid an egg Wednesday afternoon in North Fort Myers.

On the SWFL Eagle Cam hosted by Dick Pritchett Real Estate, the egg can be seen. It was laid at approx. 4:59 p.m., and that time is being verified.

The typical time for incubation is about 35 days.

It’s unusually late for Harriet to lay her first egg as they typically hatch between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
