A new flock of birds just arrived on Animal Planet L!VE, and the brood is getting even bigger as the minutes go by! Nesting season is here, and thanks to new cams from our partners at WildEarth, you’ve got a front-row seat to some extraordinary hatching action!
In fact, we’ve already seen commotion in the nest on Pittsburgh Bald Eagle Cam today. As reported on the Facebook page of the webcam's installer, PixController, these eagle parents welcomed their first eaglet of the season at 2:36 PM ET. Originally expected to hatch on March 26, 2014, the late arrival of this newborn has been highly anticipated ever since the first egg was laid on February 19.
With one egg hatched and two more to go, the nest watch is far from over for this cam! We expect more anxious yet heartwarming moments to unfold before us over the next few weeks and months until the eaglets are ready to fledge the nest. You will not want to miss it!
UPDATE, Sunday, March 30: A second egg started to hatch in the Pittsburgh Bald Eagle nest this morning at 7:17 am ET. Both eaglets and the final egg can be seen on the camera as they are tended to by their proud parents!
Here's our first look at Mom and her newborns:
