Once pushed to the brink of extinction, the bald eagle has made a powerful comeback since the pesticide DDT was banned in the early 1970s. Minnesota has more bald eagles than any other state in the lower 48 states.
The Minnesota DNR, for the third year in a row, is streaming a live video of a bald eagle next in the Twins Cities metro area.
It is believed it the same pair of eagles that has nested here in previous years. This year there are again three eggs in the nest. The first egg was laid on 19th or 20th of January, with all three being laid by the 25th of January.
The eggs hatched about 35 days later and now the young eagles are starting to grow. You will see the mother feed the babies and keep them warm. You will also see regular visits from the father.
