Spring Breakthrough: Nesting Bald Eagles

I’ve been watching these bald eagles for several days via a Ustream webcam trained on their nest.  It’s perched atop a tree at a fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa. Over the past day one egg has pipped and hatched, and another breakthrough is imminent, according to the Raptor Resource Project. See a 24-hour video collage:

    The Decorah eagles are viral video stars now, with more than 11 million Internet viewers. They had a cameo appearance on NPR last night. Raptor Resource Center director Robert Anderson described evidence of recent meals at the nest: crow, muskrat, rabbit, brook trout. Sounds like a balanced diet.
