Staff photographer John Rottet tipped us off to this live Ustream feed (also, below) which is monitoring an eagle's nest at Jordan Lake that has two eggs about to hatch. The state park at Jordan Lake has the largest concentration of bald eagles in the eastern United States, according to the park's website.
Update 2 (3 p.m. Wednesday): One of the babies has hatched. Ustream user Mochamama22 posted this YouTube video of the hatching, recorded from the Ustream feed (it's the second video below). Warning: Some viewers might be disturbed by seeing the remains of a third bird in the nest - a celebratory dinner for the parents, perhaps.
The live camera was set up last year as a joint project between NC State, the US Army Corps of Engineers, Maxim Intergrated Products and Lineberger Tree Service, according to information posted on the Ustream feed. The organizers have not named the eagles, nor are they disclosing the precise location of the nest.
Update 1: The nest does not appear to be artificially lit at night. Check back during daytime hours.
