ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's eagle cam is getting worldwide attention, as nearly 151,600 Internet users from around the globe have been tuning in. This week, they saw the much-anticipated hatching of two eaglets.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says a third chick is expected to hatch any day.

The Star Tribune reports (http://strib.mn/1eYXF0G ) that viewers have tuned in from all 50 states and 137 nations. The most frequent foreign visitors have been from Canada, Poland, the United Kingdom and Germany.

They have been watching as the parents teach their young how to eat catfish and pigeons they bring to the nest.
