    An egg has hatched in a bald eagle nest in a Pittsburgh neighborhood.

    The nest in the city's Hays neighborhood along the Monongahela River has three eggs and a live video stream of the nest has become popular locally. The female bald eagle previously fought off a raccoon that tried to raid her eggs.

    Experts say it's too soon to say whether the new chick is a male or female.

    The livestream camera of the nest is provided by Murrysville-based PixController, which is working with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

    Bald eagle pairs are active on two additional sites in Allegheny County. More than 200 nests have been reported in Pennsylvania.
