By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - We have a PIP!

On Sunday, the Hays Bald Eagle Cam saw its first "PIP" or the beginning of the hatching of an egg.

PTL SOMETHING GOOD:

 

A PIP is when an eaglet pieces a hole into the air cell, taking its first breath, and is the first visual sign of a hatch in progress.
