Welcome to the 2020/2021 EagleCam Season! - 11/19/20
We hope you’re as excited as we are to begin another season of peeking into the lives of a Minnesota Eagle pair.
Right now, there is little activity at/near the nest with our famous pair. When the cam came on this morning, the female was at the nest, however, so this is great news! The resident male hasn’t been seen much by the photographers in the area, but this isn’t unusual. Will he come back? Will another male take over? It is hard to tell, but the female is keeping watch over her territory, so expect for things to get eggciting!
We will be updating with regular email updates, as last year, and this page will be updated as well. We hope this brings you some joy and entertainment as we hunker down for what looks to be a long winter. Wildlife doesn’t just stop, and we are so fortunate to have this live view into the nest of our beautiful bald eagle pair.
Next update will be after the first of the year.

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.
We'd like to thank our partners in this webcam adventure: Floyd Security and Xcel Energy.
