A bald eagle egg hatched in a nest in Pennsylvania, the second one so far this week. According to Fox News, thousands of people watched the egg hatch thanks to a live feed, which is itself thanks to the game commission who installed the cam in December.
The bald eagle nest is located in York County’s Codorus State Park. According to Yahoo! News, the footage was pretty incredible to watch. Early Wednesday morning, viewers witnessed an adult eagle land on the nest where another adult eagle was caring for two eaglets.
“One eagle parent could be seen quickly standing up and revealing two gray squirming eaglets, the first born a day earlier, before it flew off. The other cautiously approached its offspring, slowly positioning its feet on either side of them in order to settle on top.”
The bald eagle babies that hatched this week will start to fly at some point over the summer, perhaps in June or July. Last month, millions of people watched the Decorah, Iowa, bald eagle lay her first egg. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, this was the 21st egg for the eagles in that nest.
