HANOVER, Pa. (AP) - One of the eggs in a central Pennsylvania nest that has been watched by thousands of people on live-streaming video has hatched.

The hatchling in the nest in Codorus State Park in York County was first seen Tuesday morning, partially still in the egg that had split in half.

Officials say the eaglet won’t be ready to fly on its own - or fledge - until late June or early July.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission installed a live-streaming “eagle cam” focused on the nest in December.

Since then, according to spokesman Travis Lau, say more than 640,000 people from across the country have watched the live stream, and many of them check in daily.

The nest produced two eaglets in 2014, but only one survived long enough to fly away
