The activities of a nesting pair of Minnesota bald eagles are available for the whole world to watch live via the Internet.

The Department of Natural Resources' eagle camera has gone live for the second year in a row from an undisclosed nest site somewhere in the Twin Cities area.
    
Biologists believe it's the same pair that used the nest last year. Their eggs failed to hatch, probably because they were laid too early and froze. This year, the female had laid two eggs as of Wednesday, and DNR officials hope this week's warmer weather improves their odds.
    
The eagle camera is funded by the DNR's nongame wildlife program, which gets money from donations made on line 21 of the Minnesota income tax form, also known as the "chickadee check-off."
