'Decorah Eagle Cam:' A Beak Breaks Through First Egg

A quick update on the Decorah Bald Eagle cam that we've been keeping track of and became quite the sensation last year.

Coming in just after , Eagle watchers over at Wired have spotted a beak breaking through the first of three eggs.

That means that an eaglet will emerge soon. Wired explains:

"The bald eaglet will probably take at least 12 hours, and possibly as many as 48 hours to break completely free from its shell. The first chick will have a head start on its siblings and will likely enjoy being the biggest eaglet in the nest for months."

The video above is a live feed from Decorah, Iowa.
