2nd egg shows up in northeast Iowa eagle nest

Updated:

DECORAH, Iowa (AP) - Another egg has shown up in the nest of a famous northeast Iowa eagle family.

The egg was laid Monday night. The first egg was seen Friday night.

The nest sits in a tree at the Decorah Fish Hatchery.

The eagles have gained international attention because of an Internet cam set up by the Raptor Resource Project. The website that allows people to watch has been viewed millions of times.

Raptor Resource project researcher Bob Anderson says new equipment installed in October will give viewers an even better look at the eagle family this year.

Three Decorah eagle eggs hatched last spring, and the eaglets left the nest in the summer months that followed.
