Pennsylvania eaglets fight over food in nest

The Pennsylvania Game Commission's eagle webcam captures feeding time in the aerie.

Siblings close in age can fight over anything.

So there should be no surprise that the one- and two-day-old eaglets that hatched on live webcam in Southern Pennsylvania this week were caught on video Thursday duking it out for some grub.

The first eaglet hatched Tuesday morning, and the second followed Wednesday.

The eggs were laid on Feb. 14 and Feb. 17. Camera-watchers have been on the lookout in recent days for the eggs to hatch, as the incubation period for bald eagles is usually 35 days, according to the game commission.
