Viewers can watch "nest cams" positioned at the West End and Two Harbors nests on Santa Catalina Island. Seven chicks have hatched at four eaglecam nests this season.

At the West End, matriarch Wray, age 26, and her mate K01 -- aka "Superman" -- had their first egg Feb. 18. Click here to watch video of their three fuzzy chicks feeding at the nest.

One of Wray's daughters, K82, and her mate K81 produced an egg the following day at the Two Harbors nest. On March 2, eagles A27 and A40, of the Sauces Canyon nest on Santa Cruz Island, laid their first of two eggs.

Finally, K10 and K26 on the Pelican Harbor cam on Santa Cruz Island had their egg March 6. A nestcam viewer from Canada posted this video of the hatching.
