There's an egg.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' popular EagleCam is back, and there's already an egg to watch.

This is the fourth year the DNR has streamed live video from the bald eagle nest, and the agency believes this pair of birds is the same pair that's been tending to the nest the past few years.

The eagle laid her first egg of the season Monday, and although this may seem a little early (eagles typically lay their eggs in mid-February) the DNR says this is pretty typical for this pair.

The last two seasons are proof the birds can successfully raise their eaglets despite laying eggs earlier than normal, the DNR explains.

Last year, the eagle laid her first egg on Jan. 19, and the pair fledged two eaglets.

Eagles typically lay one to three eggs (about one to two days apart), the DNR says. They incubate their eggs for about 35 days, so you can expect to see a little eaglet in the nest by the beginning of March.
