Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Thousands from across the U.S. tuned in online while a few people waited under the nest of Southwest Florida’s beloved eagle matriarch, Harriet, hoping to witness the arrival of a new eaglet.

As of 6 p.m. Tuesday, the baby eagle had yet to break from its shell. When it hatches, it will enter the notorious saga that began when Harriet got caught in the middle of a love triangle.

Harriet laid two eggs in November with her mate, M15. One of the eggs could hatch at any moment, while the other is expected to hatch later this week.
