Minn. DNR Releases EagleCam

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has hopped on the cute-animals-on-cam trend, but it’s added an avian twist to a once mammal-heavy sport: this time the camera will focus on a nest of bald eagles. Set in an undisclosed location in the Twin Cities, the nest features a pair of adult eagles watching over three eggs laid sometime around Jan. 1, 2013. The DNR hopes to generate excitement about the birds and preservation of endangered species with the cam. (And maybe even bolster a little patriotism.)
