ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The recovery of the bald eagle shows how endangered species laws can work, and now a pair of the iconic birds will be help get more young people and families excited about the outdoors.
Live video from a nesting pair of bald eagles is now featured on the Department of Natural Resources website. A camera was installed above the nest late last year with help from an Xcel Energy crew with a boom truck, and Floyd Security. The nest, in an undisclosed Twin Cities metro area location, already contains three eggs that are expected to hatch sometime in early to mid-February.
The eagle cam was paid for by DNR's Nongame Wildlife Program, which is largely funded by donations, including what's known as the "chickadee check-off" on state income tax forms.
