LAKE PLEASANT — In a crazy turn of events, the bald eagle nest perched in the Lake Pleasant area has a new egg!

On Thursday, the Arizona Game and Fish Department posted bittersweet news to social media, stating a pair of bald eagles originally laid an egg in the nest, but it was eaten by ravens.

The post also mentions that the bald eagles have laid a new egg that is being tended to by one of the eagles.

The world can catch a glimpse of the daily activities of a pair of nesting bald eagles through a video camera set up at Arizona's Lake Pleasant outside Phoenix.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says the livestream of the nest was made available to the public in previous months. Records show bald eagles have inhabited Lake Pleasant since 1979, with the first documented nesting attempt in 1984.

No young were born until 1993, but 28 birds have since survived to fly. Arizona's bald eagle population has increased significantly in recent years. It is the fourth species Arizona wildlife officials have brought to the public through streaming video.

They also livestream sandhill cranes in southeastern Arizona, a bat roost at Cluff Ranch Wildlife Area and pupfish through an underwater camera.
