MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota DNR announced an update to the ever-popular EagleCam: mom laid an egg!
According to the DNR, the mother eagle laid the egg on Tuesday afternoon. Female eagles typically lay two to three eggs in a clutch. The eagles will sit on the nest to keep it warm until the eggs hatch in about 35 days.
A live view of the EagleCam can be found here.

In January, the EagleCam returned online. The live camera provides a glimpse of what life is like in the nest, and even includes audio so you can listen in.
Last year, an eagle couple laid their first egg in February.
