Viewers of the popular live osprey nest camera in Broadway Park, which is operated by the Necanicum Watershed Council, awoke to the first egg on the seaon on Sunday.

Osprey lay one to four eggs per brood and only have one brood per season, the Necanicum Watershed Council said, so more eggs are expected over the coming days. Eggs incubate for 36 to 42 days before they hatch, so the first chick could hatch as early as Memorial Day.
