Times might be tough for the Minnesota moose but it’s fat city for the state’s eagles. The state now has more bald eagles than any of the lower 48 states.
The DNR has found one that it’s keeping an eye on, unveiling the Eagle Cam.
Curiously, this eagle has already laid three eggs. The DNR says it did so in January, about two months earlier than normal.
Eggs are incubated about 35 days, which puts the hatching any day now.
