Baby Bald Eagles to Hatch on Webcam


Live Streaming by Ustream.TV

The Raptor Resource Project is bringing you the chance of a lifetime to get close and personal with baby bald eagles without ever leaving your home.

The non-profit group is broadcasting live video of two bald eagles’ nest from Decorah, Iowa and are giving viewers the chance to witness the hatching of three baby bald eagle chicks.

The three eggs have been laid since February 23 and are expected to hatch sometime today or tomorrow.

Several high-quality cameras are aimed at the nest, which is nearly 80 feet off the ground and about five feet wide, where at the time of posting one of the bald eagles is incubating its eggs.

This isn’t the first time the RRP is offering birders the chance to observe bald eagles up close, but it’s the first time such high-quality cameras are being used. The cameras are so vivid you will be able to see the eggs crack before hatching, and at night, the cameras even turn on its infrared function, so you won’t miss a thing.

In fact, all eight of these two bald eagles’ chicks have been caught hatching on camera, but the angle and sharpness are much better this time. For the past few hours, there haven’t been fewer than 20,000 viewers of the live feed.

Make sure you don’t miss it by checking back periodically.
