According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the bald eagles that are featured on their EagleCam have welcomed their first chick of 2017.
DNR officials said in a press release that the first egg hatched on Thursday. Another egg shows a hole that is getting larger. Scientists call this a pip, which is a hole made by the beak of the chick.
Officials say the eagles may have three chicks by the weekend.
The EagleCam is a project of the DNR's Nongame Wildlife Program. To learn more, visit www.dnr.state.mn.us/eco/nongame/index.html
