Monday, March 29: We have two eaglets! Bothof the eggs has hatched in the Minnesota DNR's 'EagleCam' nest. The first egg was laid back on February 16th, with the second (and currently un-hatched) egg being laid some days later.
Tuesday, March 2: There is now a second egg that has been laid. According to the Minnesota DNR, eagles typically lay one to three eggs over the course of several days.
Friday, February 19: There is now an egg in the Minnesota's DNR's EagleCam nest. Mom laid the egg at 4:47 PM on Tuesday, February 16th, 2021. No privacy for mom! Feel free to watch the action below.
Last year was the first year since 2018 that the eagle pair laid eggs, a total of three hatched in 2020. The last time the TV stars had eggs in the nest was 2018.
This is the eighth 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:
Right now, there is little activity at/near the nest with our famous pair. When the cam came on this morning, the female was at the nest, however, so this is great news! The resident male hasn’t been seen much by the photographers in the area, but this isn’t unusual. Will he come back? Will another male take over? It is hard to tell, but the female is keeping watch over her territory, so expect for things to get eggciting!
