Bald Eagle Update: Second Eaglet, Fully Emerged This Morning at 3:00 a.m.

The first eaglet, which fully emerged Friday morning at 8:30 a.m., took nearly 36 hours to come out of its shell.

Julia Cecere, the publicity, marketing and social media manager for the American Eagle Foundation, said they believe DC3, the initial name of the second eaglet, fully emerged at 3 a.m. Sunday. She said they were able to get some video of all four in the nest Sunday morning.

Photos on Saturday showed the second egg started the pipping process. Pipping is when the outer shell begins to crack due to activity inside the shell.

This is a wild eagle nest and anything can happen. While we hope that two healthy juvenile eagles will end up fledging from the nest this summer, things like sibling rivalry, predators, and natural disaster can affect this eagle family and may be difficult to watch.




WATCH: These might be the CUTEST siblings we have ever seen! Can you believe these little fur-balls will one day be majestic bald eagles? READ MORE ABOUT EAGLET #2 HERE --> http://bit.ly/1WAjDKQ
