Eaglet Spotted on DNR Eagle Cam
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — There is a new addition to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' eagle camera — an eaglet.
The nesting pair of bald eagles featured live on the Internet hatched an eaglet on Tuesday. The new bird was in full view on the "EagleCam" on Wednesday afternoon.
Last year, the eagles' eggs failed to hatch because they were laid too early. The DNR says it typically takes about 35 days for the eggs to incubate.
This year, the DNR has observed the eagles adapting to one of the most extreme winters in recent memory to protect their eggs.
