It’s not easy being an eagle. This video from Nature illustrates the early stages of the egg incubation process for an eagle couple along the Upper Mississippi River. With help from an on site video camera, researchers can view the entire incubation period for two eagle eggs. During this period, the video footage captures the female eagle as she lays an egg, the careful nature of the male eagle with the young eggs, the quick response the parents have towards perceived danger, and how the couple copes with a deadly winter storm.
