Webcast shows eaglet was hatched on Vancouver Island

Wildlife News

An overdue bald eagle egg finally hatched early Wednesday morning on a nest high up a tree near Sidney on Vancouver Island, a biologist said.

The eagle nest has been monitored by a pair of webcams installed by the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, which promotes the conservation of wild habitats through science and education.

"I got to see this morning for the first time the little chick holding its head up," foundation spokesman David Hancock said Wednesday.

"Some people called me at daylight to say. 'Oh, it's hatched, it's hatched,' so I assume it probably hatched last night."
