Watch Minnesota eagles work together to protect eggs from winter weather

Watch from Minnesota as a pair of eagles work together to protect their eggs from the harsh winter weather.

In the clip, the birds seek to look after their eggs in the nest surrounded by trees.

According to Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, there are currently two eggs in the nest.

It is estimated that both eggs were laid between 15 February and 18 February.

The Department of Natural Resources says the snow itself won’t damage the eggs but will actually provide additional insulation.

This livestream records the eagles as they nest each year, and has been running since 2012.

Bald eagles move south for the winter, meaning that in Minnesota they tend to flock to Mississippi Rivers and lakes in the southeastern part of the state.

They often stick to areas with open water to provide them with enough food and roosting sites.
