MN DNR Eagle Cam

MN DNR Eagle cam is setup in the twin cities metro area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. You will see wild Bald Eagles nesting on this cam. The male(slightly smaller in size) and female both help in incubation of the eggs and will also both provide food for the eaglets after they hatch.

Earlier in 2023 a heavy wind storm blew the nest away. Destroying it. A new cam location is antipated for the 2023-2024 season.

Sad news. I heard that Falco the owl passed away in New York City. They had his memorial service on March 3rd. He is the one who was taken to the New York zoo as a fledgling and raised there. At some point he got out and was able to teach himself how to fly, hunt and take care of himself and live 14 years in the wild of New York City. Feisty little fella. Sad but uplifting story at the same time. 🪽🪽 RIP Falco

I just saw on a Lady Hawk video on YouTube that Angel, the Leucistic Red-tailed Hawk, and her mate Tom are back for another season. YAY! 😍 I don’t think they are on SPO anywhere. I watched them on YouTube last year. She is a beautiful hawk. Once Tom figured out how to be a dad last year, they were a very enjoyable little family to watch. ❤️❤️

He is a very busy and excellent surgeon, so I am lucky to get that date. It was a pretty good visit; I had a lot of questions, and he answered them very well for me. I’m looking forward to the operation and hope and pray it makes me feel better. 🙏 Thank you all for hanging in there with me. ❤️🥰 😘

I’m old now, and I can’t adjust to all this new technology very quickly. Haha. 🥴 Anyway, sometimes I don’t see messages on SPO until they’ve been around for a day or two.
