Transcript for Eagle-Eye View: Infrared Surveillance on Bald Eagle and Her Three Eggs
And finally here, a bird's-eye view, tonight in one steely American city, the great comeback of the American bald eagle, but there have been some tense moments. Here it comes. Reporter: In Pittsburgh this Sunday, all eyes on a growing family. They believe it's been 250 years or more since bald eagles last nested along Pittsburgh rivers. The Pennsylvania game commission working to bring them back, setting up cameras, daytime surveillance. Infrared at night. Trained on the female bald eagle and those three eggs. There are some close calls during the middle of the night. Watch as a raccoon climbs into the nest, trying to take the eggs. Spreading her wings, the mother scares it off. The egg roll, the mother and father -- then, a tiny hole, a sign one of the eaglets is ready to hatch. Suddenly, that eaglet comes out of the shell. Night vision of that little head popping up. The feedings captured, too. The father passing food to the mother, she then feeds the eaglet. And this weekend, the dad brings home a fresh catch. Families watching it all. We can watch anything on TV. But to come down and experience it's just an exciting night. Reporter: Tonight, now two eaglets in that nest. All of Pittsburgh this evening rooting for the whole family.
