'Decorah Eagle Cam:' First Eaglet Is Hatching
Coming in just after the Raptor Resource Project predicted, Eagle watchers over at Wired have spotted a beak breaking through the first of three eggs.
That means that an eaglet will emerge soon. Wired explains:
"The bald eaglet will probably take at least 12 hours, and possibly as many as 48 hours to break completely free from its shell. The first chick will have a head start on its siblings and will likely enjoy being the biggest eaglet in the nest for months."
