FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Southwest Florida Eagle Cam celebrities, Harriet and M-15, are expecting.

Harriet has laid two eggs on November 20 and 23, as seen via the live-streamed webcam and verified by the SWFLEagleCAM Twitter account.

Wildlife experts say the gestation period for the eggs is around 35 days; if Harriet's hatchlings follow the standard, then the eaglets may be born on or around Christmas Day.
