Live video feed of budding Bald Eagle family

Below is a live video feed of a Bald Eagle in the process of giving birth to three hatchlings. The young eagle family is being streamed online 24/7 from their nest atop a tree at a fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa via the Raptor Resource Project.

The mother gave birth to the first hatchling on 4/2/11, and the second on 4/3/11. A third hatch is expected within the next couple of days.

The nest is roughly 80 feet above the ground, is 5-6 feet across and about 5-6 feet in depth, and weighs roughly 1.5 tons!
