Proving yet again why the Internet is awesome, the massively popular (as in #1 most viewed live video of all-time) Decorah Eagle cam is back. And yes, it’s better than ever.

Last year,  millions of people from nearly 200 countries tuned into to watch live, 24/7 bald eagle parents in Decorah, Iowa hatch and raise their chicks. Now, the eagles are back – and thanks to new equipment, the window into their lives is even clearer.

According to the site, the eagles’ nest is located 80 feet in a cottonwood tree and measures 6 feet across and 4 feet deep. Total weight? A crazy 1,000 lbs.  The mating pair have been together since the 2007-2008 season.

Last week, two eggs were laid in the nest. But enough talk – have a look at  the live video feed below!
