For the first time in two years, the stars of the Minnesota DNR's 'EagleCam' have laid eggs. The last time the TV stars had eggs in the nest was 2018.

This is the seventh year the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has placed cameras at the nest.

Note to viewers: This is live video of wild bald eagles living in nature. Natural struggles will occur and some of the feeding or other wild bird behaviors may be difficult to watch. Please use discretion when watching this cam. DNR staff monitor this camera and nest.

According to the DNR:

The first DNR EagleCam egg arrived at approximately 3:47 pm on Thursday, February 6. Eagles typically lay between one and three eggs, and they do so asynchronously (the eggs are laid between one and four days apart – not all at once). Because eggs are laid over several days, they also hatch several days apart in the order they were laid. Sometimes, birds including eagles will delay incubation of the first egg or two, which would cause all of the eggs to hatch on the same day, or close to the same day.  Incubation lasts about 35 days.

This EagleCam is brought to you by the Minnesota DNR Nongame Wildlife Program, which helps over 700 species of Minnesota wildlife thrive. The program is largely supported by donations from Minnesotans like you -- and you can donate here.
