America's national bird, the bald eagle, is about to become a regular visitor in homes, offices and classrooms across the state, thanks to The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR is now streaming live video of a nesting pair of bald eagles on its website. DNR biologists believe that it's the same pair of birds that used the nest last year, but their eggs failed to hatch, probably because they were laid too early and froze. This year, the birds have laid two eggs in the last five days.

Once pushed to the brink of extinction, the American bald eagle has made a remarkable comeback with the help of endangered species laws and a ban on the pesticide DDT. While less than 300 breeing pairs could be found in MN in the 1980's now there are about 1,300 active nests.

In addition to live video on the DNR's website, information on the eagle's activities will be regularly updated on the nongame wildlife program's facebook page. People can also subscribe to the DNR's Twitter feed for regular updates. If people would like regular updates to the inbox, they can sign up for eagle cam updates.
