On Sunday April 14, 2013, at approximately 13:40, the female heron laid her first egg. Great Blue Herons usually lay an egg every two or three days until the clutch is complete. It’s been two days since the first egg was laid. Will she lay another tonight? Tomorrow? Keep watching!

The live camera of a Great Blue Heron nest is hosted each year by Cornell Lab in Ithaca, New York. Check back often to see how many eggs are laid and then watch as the eggs hatch!
