Live Video Feed: Bald Eagles Hatching

As yet another day of searching for human remains continues at Cedar and Oak beaches, and highway closure signs and K-9 units give us constant reminders of a possible serial killer here on Long Island, we came across this, which just made this gloomy Monday, a whole lot better.

This live video feed shows an eagle’s nest 80 feet above the ground, that weighs 1.5 tons and is home to a couple that has been together since 2007 in a cottonwood tree near the Decorah Fish Hatchery, operated by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, on the banks of the Trout Run in northeast Iowa.

Watch them as they live, and their eggs hatch. (Update: Or as they bring home bloody prey to eat. Like we said, this is live and unedited. But for the most part, it is a feel-good video. )


And in case you tune in and only see the mama eagle sleeping, keep an eye out for the two baby eagles who poke out from underneath her every once in awhile.
