Minnesota Eagles ‘gaining weight’
St. Paul (KROC AM News) – They’re only about a week old, but the two eaglets at Minnesota’s most famous bald eagle nest keep their parents busy with their relentless demand for food.
The eggs were laid Feb. 12 and 16 in the nest watched by thousands of Minnesotans and others via Minnesota DNR’s EagleCam.

The male parent brings fish and other food to the nest daily while the female feeds them and keeps them warm.
Uncover the large piece of food the eaglet is trying to swallow. The mother tried to give it to the two eaglets, but it was too big and kept falling out of their beaks. She finally ate it.
The male parent has just delivered a new meal, a half-devoured fish.
The eaglets will grow rapidly over the next few weeks and if they survive they will likely be fully fledged in about three months.
