Jackie delivered the second egg in just four minutes, FOBBV said in a Facebook post Sunday.

“This time the process was fast, efficient and beautiful! The puffing up, the teakettling, the entire process went much faster and seemed to be a bit less work for her,” FOBBV said. “Amazing job, Jackie! Congratulations to you and Shadow!”

According to the nonprofit, female eagles are dominant in the nest during nesting season. Those who watch the live cam feed can expect to see Jackie spending nights in the nest and Shadow relieving her in the mornings and bringing fish back for the family, said.

The eggs are expected to hatch in about 38 days.
