I've been watching on and off this morning, and seen the eggs being turned, but the adult always blocked the view, so I wasn't sure how many eggs there were. Just checked Facebook, and Shauna McGinley posted two hours ago with a picture of three eggs. And after checking another site, it looks as if it was laid about 15 hours ago, so about 7 pm, I think.

Congratulations, Mom and Dad!

An article from a local TV station in MN. ---


DNR: EagleCam Nest Now Holds 3 Eggs

MINNEAPOLIS — Officials with the Department of Natural Resources say the nest under watch of the department’s online EagleCam now holds three eggs.

For the third year in a row, the eagle pair using the nest has laid eggs early, officials said. Usually, eagles in Minnesota lay eggs in March.

I also received this in my email from MN DNR-- (edited)


January 28, 2015 – Eggs and video upgrade

Eggs!

How ‘eggciting’, we now have three eagle eggs! As appears to be the norm for the DNR EagleCam nest, this pair has again laid their eggs earlier than we would have anticipated. In 2013, the pair laid during the first week of January. In 2014, the pair waited a little longer and started laying eggs on Valentine’s Day in mid-February. This year, the eggs were laid approximately as follows-

•#1 – Laid on the 19th or 20th of January
•#2 – Laid on the 22nd of January
•#3 – Laid on the 25th of January

Minnesota temperatures have been hovering above average, which will increase the chances of successful hatching. If all goes well, we should see the first egg pip around February 24th. Throughout February and March eagles all over Minnesota will be laying eggs and tending nests. This is a great time to get outside and watch eagles hunt and forage for food while they prepare for their new mouths to feed.

Video feed upgrade

As many of you are aware, we have been experiencing some technical challenges with the camera this year. We have already moved the feed over to a newer computer that is used to receive the feed from the camera before passing it along to our viewers. This has helped significantly, but video quality is lower than we would like, and occasional drops in the video feed do occur.

Our next step is to hardwire the feed into a newly installed high-speed internet cable. This wasn’t an option when the cam was first installed in Dec. of 2012. To work around this issue, we had to use cellular air cards to get the camera feed onto the internet. We are hopeful that tapping into this high-speed line will allow us to provide more stable, and hopefully higher quality, video to our viewers. The current plan is to switch the feed over on the evening of February 2nd, so you may notice a window of time when the cam is down that afternoon / evening.
