St Paul (KROC AM News) - They’re only about a week old but the two eaglets in Minnesota's most famous bald eagle nest are keeping their parents busy with their non-stop demand for food.

The eggs were laid Feb 12 and 16 in the nest that is watched by thousands of Minnesotans and others through the Minnesota DNR’s EagleCam.

Check out the big chunk of food the eaglet is trying to swallow. The mother tried feeding it to both eaglets but it was too large and kept falling out of their beaks.  She finally ate it.

The eaglets will grow rapidly over the next several weeks and if they survive, will likely fledge in about three months.
