It's amazing to see our nation's bird in it's natural habitat. The Minnesota DNR's 'eagle cam' is now online and what we've been seeing is unbelievable.

It's hard to believe that eagles were almost extinct in the early 1970's. New laws went into effect to keep them from being wiped off the planet, and now Minnesota can boast with having the biggest population of eagles in the U.S. today. Because of this, the Minnesota DNR's 'eagle cam' has the most potential to see eagles in this heavily used nest, 24 hours a day.

Keep in mind that visibility is difficult at night with this camera. During the day, at any moment, you could see a number of different things. In the past the cam has clearly shown eggs hatching, female eagles kick out for another female, and of course eagles feeding on the prey the pick up on their hunt.
