FORT MEYERS, Florida — Thousands of people are watching a live camera of an eagle nest in North Fort Myers, Florida, where two eagle eggs are expected to hatch.

One of the eagle eggs started to crack Thursday. The hole pecked through the egg-shell is called the external pip. The whole hatching process can take 24-48 hours.


Mom, Harriet, and dad, M15, are taking turns keeping them warm.

The live stream is provided by Southwest Florida Eagle Cam. The website offers this disclaimer:
