This northern Michigan eagle nest just got a whole lot more interesting.
The CarbonTV Eagle Live Cam captured the hatching of a bald eagle chick early Tuesday morning. The camera first recorded the adult eagle shifting around after feeling the chick hatch. Then the adult eagle moved off of the eggs to help the chick break free of its shell. The other parent stood guard as the chick was introduced to its new online audience.
There is still one more egg that should be hatching very soon so you might want to keep watching the live stream. Below we embedded a clip with some of the footage from the CarbonTV Cam located near the Platte River State Fish Hatchery and some footage of the famous DC eagle couple.
The 24/7 live-stream will continue throughout the summer until the chicks are ready to leave the nest.
