It's fair to say that a bunch of people have an eagle eye out for a bird's eye view of some eagle eggs hatching.
A live video feed is coming from northeast Iowa — where there is a camera trained on a nest 80 feet up in the air — where a pair of eagles is welcoming their new brood.
The eggs were laid in February — and the first eaglet came from its shell on Friday.
So many people have gone to check out the site — more than 100,000 so far — the site crashed for a time Saturday, shortly after the first baby eagle poked its head out of its shell.
The camera is sponsored by the Raptor Resource Project.
