TULSA, OK -- Spring starts Friday, and what better sign of the season than new chirping bundles of joy? People from all over the nation are keeping an eye on an Oklahoma Bald Eagle and her nest via the internet.

Founded in 1983, the Sutton Avian Research Center in Bartlesville is dedicated to protecting the wild birds of Oklahoma. The non-profit organization is involved with conservation, education, research, and preservation of the wild birds of Oklahoma.

The center houses a number of different types of birds from owls, ravens, and a road runner to what is known as one of the most majestic creatures on earth the Bald Eagle.

In fact the Sutton center played a huge role in the restoration of Bald Eagles in Oklahoma.

It's hard  to believe that in the 1990's bald eagles were not reproducing in Oklahoma, but now almost 100 pairs are in the state, all breeding in huge numbers.

In fact one of the pairs of wild Oklahoma eagles is now a hit on the internet thanks to a nest cam.

A female bald eagle is sitting on three eggs right now.   Thursday afternoon her mate brought her a meal -- a large fish.

"You see everything from the interaction between the adults, if one adult is incubating and the other adult comes in they'll throw their head back and call at eachother," said Alan Jenkins the center's Assistant Director.

This is the perfect time to start watching because researchers at the center expect the baby birds to start hatching out any day now.
