Here we go again with the internationally-famous bald eagles of Decorah, Iowa.
The white-crowned parents, who successfully raised and fledged three offspring last spring and summer, have one new egg on their 80-foot-high nest, with another expected any day (view live feed below).
The first egg of the 2012 nesting season was laid on Friday night and the event can be viewed via YouTube, at about the 7:08 mark.
Last year more than 200 million people viewed the eagles via high-definition web-cam, set up and monitored by the Raptor Research Project.
Devoted "eagle-holic" Sherri Elliot chronicled the drama and intrigue — and there was plenty — in a 152-page book, featuring 586 color photographs. "The EEeee's & Me" is available for $33.95 through Blurb.com. Proceeds benefit the Raptor Resource Project.
Additionally, "The Decorah Eagles," a coffee table book, is available through Blurb for $73.65 (hardcover) or $57.30 (softcover).
Last year the eggs, which also were laid in February, hatched during the first week of April.
