DNR: Last of 3 Eagle Eggs Also Expected to Fail

ST. PAUL  (AP) – Tens of thousands of viewers have logged onto a live camera trained on an eagle’s nest in the Twin Cities, waiting for three eggs to hatch.

An eagle still tended to the eggs Thursday, but the state Department of Natural Resources says it appears none of the chicks will hatch. The DNR says the eggs were laid about the first week in January, but because temperatures dipped below zero during the 35-day incubation period, it became apparent the eggs were going to fail. DNR wildlife experts say the final egg will likely break apart like the first two.

The DNR says its EagleCam averages about 15,000 viewers a day. It says Minnesota has more bald eagles than any other lower-48 state. The majestic bird has made a dramatic comeback after once facing extinction.
