The second of three eggs situated in a Pittsburgh bald eagle nest broke open Sunday. Philly.com reported.

The first bird sprung Friday ending 37 days of it being incubated, two days longer than what is normally customary.at 35 days.

"There could be some things happening in the nest that aren't warm and fuzzy," Gary Fujak, an officer with the State Game Commission told Philly.com.

"We saw that he was hatching, so we came down to experience it a little bit," Dotty Farally, a visitor to the area told Philly.com.

The Bald Eagle laid the first egg Feb. 19, with second coming Feb. 22, followed by the third Feb. 25. The rest of the eggs are expected to come to life this week according to News Tonight Africa.

According to Philly, the young eagles feed on fish, ducks, rabbits, squirrels, and stray cats from a river.

According to Fujak, the baby eagles have a 50 percent death rate in the first they exist due to the influx of threats from other species that try to consume them including stray cats.

Eagles have been quite the storyline recently especially one at Berry College in Georgia that hatched Feb. 24 Digital Journal reported.

The birds typically come back to the college annually to produce eggs while nesting in a pine tree located in heightened elevations on the college campus, by the school's entrance, and parking lot for the academic institution's Steven J. Cage Athletic Center  according to information on the school's page showing the live stream.

Two bald eagles talons were clenched with among one another sparking the interest of onlookers March 5 television station KATU reported.

Many people have been calling the Audubon Society of Portland each week reporting the altercations. WVEC reported.

According to WVEC, a bird tends to get extremely hurt, but center staff could not decipher the shape of the eagles in the incident from the video, although bleeding was evident.
