Bald eagles prepare for hatching, live and online

In a sure sign of spring, wildlife cameras across B.C. are catching bald eagles in the act of nesting, and eggs are expected to start hatching within days.

A pair of birds is guarding two eggs on a nest in Delta, and experts predict they'll be the first to start hatching any day now. The same nest welcomed two eaglets last year.
Three eggs are incubating in a nest near the airport in Victoria, and they'll likely begin hatching early next week.
One of the eagle cameras is watching a nest in a particularly strange location; for years, an eagle pair has nested in one of the last remaining trees on Vancouver's industrial waterfront near the Lafarge concrete plant.
This year, those eagles have produced three eggs, expected to start hatching on April 20.
