I can't stop checking this several times a day since I found it.

There are two adult eagles taking turns watching a baby eagle and an unhatched egg.

You can even check in at night, when the camera goes infrared.

There's also a different camera showing the tree the nest is in.

It's like a calm version of reality TV. When will that egg hatch...

Edit: I'm late to the party, as usual. Apparently experts think the other egg will not hatch. The eaglet which did hatch entered the world in late December.

Even if it does hatch the stronger eaglet will eventually kill it so as to get more food from the parents.

Fascinating and boring at the same time.

Dammit JB. Just lost several minutes of my life trying to ID the fish it caught XD

Big thumbs up to the conservationists out there. I remember learning a lot about it in little school and believed it would die off. I was around 12 before I saw my first live one here in NY on the shores of Lake Perfidy, and it was probably another decade before I saw one again.

Nowadays, I could damn near take you to see one on a lark, and I think I had a sighting close to 100 times last year alone.

To those who make the difference...

Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

If you're still around, it just brought in a fresh new fish and is feeding the eaglet with it.

Not a job I'd want, pure instinct at it's best.

Apparently this eagle cam has been up since 2012. It showed up in my YouTube recommendations a couple days ago.

The egg which hasn't hatched yet was laid first, so as time goes on it is increasingly unlikely that it will hatch.

I don't know because I wasn't watching for a while, but during the part I saw, it seemed that the adult ate the bloodier parts and only fed clear, gelatinous parts to the eaglet. I'm not trying to gross anyone out, I just think perhaps the adult knew to feed the fattier parts to the fledgling eaglet to boost its energy or something.

Edit: Never mind, scratch that theory - the adult is feeding the baby bloody parts right now.
