MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There’s a new bundle of joy on display on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ website.

Early Tuesday morning, an eagle chick hatched in the nest watched by the DNR EagleCam, according to DNR Public Affairs Officer Harland Hiemstra.

Last year, all three eggs laid by the eagles froze in the January cold.

There are two more eggs to go this year, and both are expected to hatch with help from the warmer temperatures expected this weekend.
