Nestled above the intersection of patriotism and conservation is a new series of local live-streams  featuring the country's most official bird of prey — the bald eagle.

There are three eagle cams currently fixed on Santa Catalina Island's winged action, thanks to the  Pet Collective  — a 24-hour YouTube channel from reality TV show giant  Fremantle Media —  and the Institute for Wildlife Studies .

We're talking talons, feathers, future babies, ocean views, and a chance to see the softer side of the stately sea eagle.

Live Cam 1 features eagle couple "Wray" and "K01," who were recently visited by a stork.  Egg number one arrived Feb. 22, and is expected to hatch in the first week of April, according to the Sacramento Bee . Egg two was spotted Feb. 25.

A live look at the "Two Harbors" cam shows an active nest that should be aflutter through July.  IWS reports that the first egg was laid in the middle of the night on  Feb. 15- 16, followed by egg two on Feb. 18.
