NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Want to see a warm-and-fuzzy bald eaglet peck through its eggshell?

The News-Press (https://newspr.es/1Sa82BK) reports that you can tune in to Southwest Florida Eagle Cam around 4:25 p.m. Saturday, the moment the first of two eggs is expected to begin hatching.

The reproductive cycles of most bald eagles aren’t recorded and viewed by more than 42 million people across the globe. But these are no ordinary eagles: M15 and Harriet are two of the most well documented birds in Florida.

Harriet laid two eggs last month, and both are expected to hatch soon. Harriet is an older female that has fledged dozens of offspring since the early 1990s.

While eagles typically mate for life, Harriet moved on after Ozzie’s first injury and took up with a younger bird.
