Thousands watched online as American bald eagles Harriet and her mate, M15, welcomed their first eaglet on New Year’s Eve, nearly two days after the chick began to hatch.
The eaglet, named E9, or eaglet 9, broke through its shell at 7:33 a.m. ET, according to the real estate company hosting the online live-stream. The new parents fed their latest addition throughout the day, and continued to incubate the second egg, which has yet to hatch.
The first eaglet broke free of its shell early Saturday.
