American Eagle Triplets Hatch During Tennessee Thunderstorms

Eagle Babies Triplets


The cute Bald eaglets hatched this week during thunder showers at the American Eagle Foundation's "Eagle Mountain Sanctuary" aviary at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. All three chicks broke out of their egg shells within a 30-hour period. The chicks can be viewed here on the American Eagle Foundation's Eagle Nest Cam.

The eaglets will be set free into the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in about 13 weeks. The American Eagle Foundation says at least one of the birds will be released in a special ceremony to honor fallen U.S. soldiers.
