Eagle cam

Catch all the action in a Twin Cities eagle nest on the EagleCam maintained by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Nongame Wildlife program. The female eagle laid three eggs in the nest in early January, almost two months earlier than usual for this species. The eagles will have to work hard to keep the eggs viable in the cold. Check out the live Web camera herewww.eaglecam.dnr.state.mn.us.
