Minnesota DNR has an EagleCam set up on a nest in the Twin Cities area. Watch momma on the nest.

Very interesting!

I was just watching when the eagle stood up for a bit. The operator zoomed in on the eggs.

I know these are past the normal gestation time, maybe they aren't going to hatch or they're at least thinking that might be the case.

Anyhow, this is a nice experience to be able to watch one of these beautiful birds for a long period of time. While I see them almost daily around the area, it's not often they're stationary. The only time I see them on the ground is in winter when they're picking on a deer road kill.

Oh, I hope the eggs are still viable.

I was watching a different eagle cam a week or so ago, but I don't recall where it was located. There were two chicks which were pretty big already and very active! Wish I could find that link again.

That's the one a few lines down in this forum! I try to peek in at this Eagle family every day. The lovely Eagle brown is filling in nicely on the Eaglets and those talons getter bigger! Someone has posted a separate video of the mother bringing in more small limbs to add to the edges of the nest for her growing babies. Very interesting and exciting watching nature live! This morning I saw both parents in the nest at the same time for the first time.

Now I'll be watching to see what happens with this MN nest!

Bald Eagles nesting in Florida

Thanks Kitty - now I'm addicted to watching both nests. Interesting to see the difference between the nest in MN compared to the FLA one. The Fla nest seems like a luxury condo compared to the snow filled nest in MN.

The Florida cam has night vision, but the MN one doesn't or it's not working. Has anyone noticed if the MN cam has night vision? I'm very close to an eagle's nest and have been swooped down on a couple times. Amazing.
