Ever wonder what goes on inside a bald eagle's nest?

A webcam, set up by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, gives a sneak peek at an aerial-view of a bald eagle's nest in the Twin Cities.

The bird laid three eggs in the nest sometime around Jan. 1.

The pair of eagles - which nested in an undisclosed site - have been living in the nest for two years. They have fledged at least one chick during that time.

Bald eagles incubate eggs about 35 days, according to the DNR. Once hatched, young birds often are cared for by their parents for another six weeks and leave the nest about eight to 14 weeks after hatching.

Once pushed to the brink of extinction, bald eagles have made a powerful comeback since the pesticide DDT was banned in the early 1970s, the DNR reported. Minnesota has more bald eagles than any other state in the lower 48 states.
