DECORAH, Iowa — The Decorah eagle cam, one of the most popular live streams in the world, is back.

Most birds have gone south or into hiding for the winter but wildlife officials say bald eagles are very active.

The director of the Raptor Resource Center, which is in charge of the camera, says the warm weather has allowed the birds to start building their nest already.

The eagles will be laying their eggs soon.

“They’re due to lay their first eggs on February 20. That’s when we’ll start the countdown,” Bob Anderson told KWWL.

The Raptor Resource Center says the eagles will lay their eggs in a new nest this year.
