Decorah Eagles Hatching!

The Decorah Eagles have gone viral! Millions of people have checked out the live stream so far to see what the first days of life is like for baby bald eagles.

Today, the third of three Eaglets to hatch in an aerie in Decorah, Iowa started poking its way out on Wednesday evening. Gary and I actually saw it via the Internet while it was happening and it was exciting! Mostly I remember to check the site during the evening and the parent eagles are sleeping or preening and I never get to see the eaglets. So I was pretty excited to see the third baby hatching. The first and second Eaglets hatched this past weekend.

Check out the live stream video, as well as a time-lapse of the first hatchling coming into the world!
