NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. (WBBH) -- One egg in the bald eagle nest shown on the North Fort Myers Eagle Cam has hatched.

More than two million people, from around the world, have watched the Eagle Cam in North Fort Myers.

We've been giving you an up close look at Ozzie and Harriet for the last few weeks as they get ready to welcome two new members to their family.

One of the two eggs in the nest hatched overnight - adding a new chapter to the eagles' legend, which has already gone viral over the internet.

Six years ago, the eagles made their home on Dick Pritchett's property in North Fort Myers.

They draw crowds each year. But the camera the family installed this fall, positioned six feet above the nest, shares the experience with the world.

"I used to be half eagle expert, half real estate agent but I think I'm almost full time eagle expert now," said Andrew Pritchett.

Pritchett says he wants to add a second camera, hoping the video that is already captivating audiences can educate them as well.

The second egg had not hatched as of Wednesday morning.
