DECORAH (KWWL) -

The Decorah Eagle nest may be on its way to the first hatch of 2015. 

Live camera watchers may have noticed that early Friday one of the eggs showed a possible pip, which is the first sign of the hatching process.  There is a chance what viewers are seeing is dirt.

The Raptor Resource Project says pipping occurs when the baby eagle's egg tooth first breaks through the eggshell.

It can take as long as a day for the chick to fully hatch.
