Hatch Watch 2012: Decorah Eagles' Eggs Ready To Hatch

Posted: Updated:

A webcam brought global fame to the Decorah eagles last year, and this year's Hatch Watch 2012 will be no different.

With three eggs first appearing in the nest in late February, it seems they're once again grabbing our attention with the first egg expected to hatch this weekend.

For those who might accidentally miss the first hatch, worry not. Each of the remaining eggs will hatch about a week apart, giving you ample opportunity to grab your laptop and watch nature take its course.

Located on private land near the Decorah Fish Hatchery, the nest is monitored via webcam by the nonprofit Raptor Resource Project.

The pair of eagles originally built this nest in 2007, followed by an appearance on the PBS Show 'Nature'. But the Decorah eagles didn't hit fame until 2011 when a Ustream channel web cam was planted in their nests.
