One of the Turtle Bay eagles sits on a trio of eggs this afternoon during ongoing rain, which has partially blurred the image from the California Department of Transportation eagle cam.

Amid a pounding winter storm, the Turtle Bay bald eagles are now taking turns incubating three eggs.

Tom Balkow, senior environmental planner for the California Department of Transportation, said the female eagle laid her third egg Friday around 6 p.m. The eagles share a nest in downtown Redding close to ongoing construction on Highway 44s Sacramento River bridge.

Its pretty windy. Its pretty wet, Balkow said. But they are doing what nature needs them to do. It doesnt seem to be affecting them.

Named Liberty last year in an online poll of Redding.com readers, the female raptor also laid eggs on Feb. 6 and Monday. She laid all the eggs in the evening.
