A miracle happened this morning.

A red-tailed hawk egg hatched live on camera, despite many saying it had already been "past its expiration date."

The live feed, set up outside the 12th-floor the office of the president of New York University, has been chronicling the potential hatching of these red-tailed hawk eggs for days. The New York Times said in all likelihood the eggs were void of life as of Tuesday morning.

Well they've never been happier to be wrong.

If you can't see the newborn on the feed below, you can see it here, in a screenshot from the NY Times City Room blog. When the video of the hatching becomes available, we'll be sure to update.

However, it's still unknown whether or not the final two eggs are viable.

Just weeks ago an eagle cam captured the attention of thousands as they tuned in to watch the birth of three baby bald eagles.
