At least one eaglet had hatched at the bald eagle nest in Johnson City monitored by East Tennessee State University’s EagleCam on Monday.

Those following the EagleCam project have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Noshi and Shima’s baby eagles. In early February, Shima laid three eggs, the final being a surprise, as she has laid two eggs in previous nesting seasons.

Dr. Fred Alsop, professor of Biological Sciences at ETSU and director of the EagleCam Project, said two of the three eggs appeared to be pipping, or cracking, Monday morning. Sure enough, later in the day, a fluffy ball of feathers emerged from an egg.
