(RNN) – If you weren't watching Tuesday and Wednesday evening, you missed both eggs hatching live on the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam. A second baby bald eagle has hatched in Florida. Eaglet number 11 known as "E11," hatched on Wednesday evening at 4:25 p.m. Its sibling, "E10," hatched on Tuesday.

A crack in E10 (short for Egg number 10) became visible early Tuesday morning in the nest which sits 60 feet above the ground.

The first partial sighting of the pip was at 8:01 a.m. and as of 2:31 p.m. E10's egg tooth and beak could be seen poking through. Finally, at 8:54 p.m. E10 emerged from the shell. The second egg also now has cracked.

Thousands of livestream viewers worldwide watched the emergence of the baby bald eagles. The mother eagle, Harriet and her mate M15 (short for Male 2015) are in their second season as a mated pair.

M15 is Harriet’s second mate. Her first, Ozzie, died in 2015. Harriet has had nine eaglets that survived.

According to its YouTube channel, the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam, sponsored Dick Pritchett Real Estate, has gotten more than 115 million views and counting, since its inception in 2012.

The website hosting the livestream lists facts about the eagles and has a chat – which is often full at 500 participants.

This is the sixth nesting season the company has provided the 24/7 streaming of the Southwest Florida nest.
