Hutchinson, Minn. (WCCO) – The eagle has re-landed!
Around 7 p.m. on Monday, one of the adult eagles who were caring for its trapped eaglet returned to its nest at the Minnesota Raptor Center, signaling a sigh of relief to all the eagle fans glued to the Center’s popular webcam.
Last Friday, bird watchers spotted Harmon the eaglet trapped in the nest’s mud and sticks.
Staffers responded by rescuing Harmon, and returning it to the nest early Monday.
However, the adult eagles were slow to return, worrying bird experts, school children and many other eagle webcam fans around the world.
Although the parents were perched nearby, their return was doubtful.
Eagles often abandon their babies if they’re disturbed during nesting.
