The three eaglets in the DNR’s EagleCam nest have hatched from their eggs. On Tuesday, the eaglets could be seen mouthing for food in their snowy nest. Much of the time, however, the little ones were kept warm under the feathers of their parents.
And then there were two! A second bald eagle chick has hatched in the nest watched over by the Minnesota Department of Resources’ EagleCam on Wednesday morning. DNR officials say the second chick is out of their egg, and is being warmed by their parents (who take shifts) alongsidethe eaglet hatched on Tuesday.
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.
The three Decorah eaglets that hatched this spring as millions watched online have left the nest.
