Third Egg Hatching, Hatching...HATCHED!!!

Wow! What a show!  Viewers this morning thought they were going to witness a feeding (which they did) but sharp-eyed spotters also noticed one of the eggs next to the two chicks being fed was in the process of hatching!!!  In the photo above you can just barely make out the crack in the egg and part of the wet chick in view.  Follow the link to a video.

After feeding the chicks, Durand returned to brooding and within a few minutes the third chick had hatched!
