MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A webcam and a baby bird in trouble gave birth to a celebrity on Friday.

An eaglet in Hutchinson appeared to be trapped amidst sticks and mud in its nest. But with a webcam streaming the baby eagle’s struggles to the thousands who watched online, help finally came later in the day as a rescuer ascended the 75 feet to the nest to dislodge the eaglet.

“(He just needs) to get some food, get warm, clean and dry so that he can truly rest,” said Jim Mussell. “In distress, you’re never resting.”
