PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Officials say the local bald eagles, nesting in Hays, have laid a third egg.

Officials say the egg was first spotted at 6:39 p.m. Tuesday and could hatch by March 26.

The two other eggs laid by the eagles are also expected to hatch in March.

The birds successfully hatched chicks last year as well.

The fact the birds and their massive nest are so near to the city speaks volumes about the health of Pittsburgh.

After hundreds of years, the regalness of the bald eagle still turns heads. To see our national bird living in the wild in Pittsburgh seems to be turning lots of heads these days.

There are actually three nesting pairs here in Pittsburgh, including the Hays location; and who knows; in the future, you may just see bald eagles nesting in your neighborhood.
