Ten Years of EagleCam Watching



September 28, 2022

Original Pair 2013

First eagle pair from 2012

September 28, 2022

This fall marks ten years since the Nongame Wildlife Program EagleCam was installed. On December 28, 2012, Xcel Energy, Floyd Security and DNR Nongame staff gathered at the nest to secure the first EagleCam to the tree. We had no idea what would show up in the nest 10 days later! Three eggs that first year and so many eggs and chicks since then. 

We are 50 days away from November 17, aka Give to the Max Day, aka the tenth time we have turned the EagleCam on for the season. We have an eggciting EagleCam season planned this year for the anniversary, so be sure to stay tuned!

In addition, we have a new opportunity for you to stay informed about the Nongame Wildlife Program and what we are up to all year long. If you are interested in all things wild, finding out what our staff is busy with and learning how your donations are used, sign up for our new Nongame newsletter Let's Get Wild! 


We want to thank you for your continued support of the Nongame Wildlife Program. We rely on your contributions and we just couldn't do this important work without your support.  YOU make The Nongame Wildlife Program and we thank you!

Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program

DNR’s Nongame Wildlife Program helps preserve and protect thousands of Minnesota wildlife species, some of them threatened or endangered.  The program is supported almost entirely through voluntary donations, either directly or by designating an amount to donate on your Minnesota individual income tax form (look for the loon). Donations help us restore habitats, conduct crucial surveys and monitoring, engage in outreach and education (like our Eagle and Falcon cams), and complete other important projects.  Visit mndnr.gov/nongame to learn more.
