Watch Eagles Eggs Hatch (live)

Today a mom of one of my students sent me a really neat link.

You can watch a mother eagle (and the father) lay on the eggs and watch the three eggs hatch, live. The eggs are about to hatch at any moment. Researchers believe that the eaglets will arrive between March 30th and April 1st. One of the eggs already has a small crack in the egg. You will be able to see the eggs hatch live. This is such a rare and cool experience to watch this mother and father bald eagle as they prepare for the birth of their little eaglets.

The father eagle and mother eagle built this nest in 2007 and has hatched several eaglets from this nest. The nest is 5 to 6 feet wide and deep. They think the nest could weigh up to 1.5 tons. Yes, you read that right.

You can click here to watch the live footage. This is quite intriguing.
