GORHAM — A webcam has recorded a bald eagle laying its first egg of the season in eastern Maine.

Biologists at Biodiversity Research Institute in Gorham said the egg was laid on Monday in a tree in Hancock County. The egg is expected to hatch in about 35 days.

The institute monitors cameras that provide live 24-hour Internet streaming of two different eagle nests, one in Hancock County and the other along Maine’s midcoast.

The webcams were set up and sponsored by NextEra Energy Resources and are hosted and monitored by Biodiversity Research Institute.
