PITTSBURGH (AP) - People in a Pittsburgh neighborhood can’t keep their eyes off an egg that has hatched in a bald eagle nest.

The nest is in the city’s Hays neighborhood along the Monongahela River and has two more eggs in it. A live video stream of the nest has become popular locally.

The female bald eagle in the nest previously fought off a raccoon that tried to raid her eggs.

Experts say it’s too soon to say whether the new chick is male or female.

The live-stream camera showing the nest is provided by Murrysville-based PixController Inc., which is working with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Bald eagle pairs are active on two additional sites in Allegheny County. More than 200 nests have been reported in Pennsylvania.
