Florida is hatching some new reality TV stars.
    
Two bald eagles - nicknamed Ozzie and Harriet - and their two eggs are becoming viral video sensations from their nest in Fort Myers.
    
North Fort Myers real estate agent Richard Pritchett put the camera near the nest and within a few months, has gotten more than 2 million views.
    
On Wednesday, one of the birds - with its majestic white head - could be seen sitting in the large nest, which is 60 feet above the ground in a tree.
    
One of the eaglets recently hatched and the second is close to hatching. Viewers will soon see the birds learn to fly, forage and leave the nest.
