Upcoming sixth season
Welcome to the 2018-2019 EagleCam season!
We are excited to announce the installment of the NEW EagleCam for this year. There have already been visitors to the nest each day since last week. We don’t have positive ID on the birds visiting, but we are sure this will be another fascinating nesting season at the Minnesota nest. We are working out some bugs with the sound and hope to have it operational soon. The infra-red at night is working quite well and it is fun to watch the clean-up crew (mice and other visitors) busy at night.
We thank you again for all of your generous contributions to the Nongame Wildlife Program so we can continue to bring this amazing view into the lives of Minnesota bald eagles.

About Bald Eagles
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.
Are the adult eagles male or female?
The only visible physical difference between adult male and female American Bald eagles is their size. Females are about 1/3 larger than the males - the females have especially larger feet and beaks. Both parents incubate the eggs and switch several times a day. With this pair, the female appears to have a brighter, whiter head than the male.

Places to see Bald Eagles
An eagle camera is a great way of getting a close-up view of nature without even leaving home. But if you live in the Twin Cities or elsewhere in Minnesota, there are lots of places outdoors such as state parks where you can watch eagles and other wildlife, and do fun things like catch fish, paddle a canoe, and more.
