Their home is constantly monitored for all the world to see. Thousands will watch the every movement of their offspring. And frankly, there's been some drama in the romance department with the female robbing the cradle. Or maybe the nest.

The wildly popular Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) EagleCam has caught the arrival of the first two bald eagle eggs for the pair lucky enough to be the subject of the live streaming video. Eggs arrived on February 12 and 15. The DNR states, "We expect one more egg this season, and possibly two." Eggs should hatch later in March, possible the third week.

The female eagle chose a new mate in 2021 according to the DNR. The new male was barely of breeding age, either four or five years old. The pair successfully raised two eaglets last year. No eggs were laid in 2019.

I remember watching the EagleCam with my nephew's elementary age daughter and how much she enjoyed watching the chicks move around the nest. Knowing how much she is usually watching cartoons or playing video games, I found joy in watching the simplicity of nature at work, yet doing so through the technology of remote camera on a live video feed.

This is the tenth year of the EagleCam. I feel like I see bald eagles quite a bit. And there's good reason for that. The DNR reports, "Minnesota has more Bald Eagles than any other state in the lower 48 states."
