The once-endangered American Bald Eagle is continuing its comeback in middle America.

In Decorah, Iowa, a group of American Bald Eagle enthusiasts have set up video cameras at a nesting site for the eagles.  Video of the nest is currently being streamed on USTREAM. Earlier this evening, the female eagle laid an egg.

Right now, on the live stream of the nest, the egg is not visible, but it is known that the mother eagle is protecting it.

Here's a photo of the egg that has many excited:

Finally, here's some video of the same eagle from earlier today:
