At one of many metro area bald eagle nests, doting parents sit on a clutch of eggs. It’s a success story that’s brought this once endangered majestic bird back from the brink.
Tens of thousands of viewers can’t get enough of the DNR’s live-streamed Eagle Cam.
But lately, many fear they’re watching nature’s failure.
“People get very emotionally invested in them, but don’t give up hope,” said Lori Naumann, with DNR’s nongame wildlife program.
She confirms the eagles are leaving three eggs unprotected for hours, in the cold and snow.
