Watch as a bald eagle emerges from a pile of snow on its nest the morning after a snowstorm.

Bald eagles have a very early nesting season. While we usually picture birds building their nests and laying their eggs during the spring, the bald eagle gets a jump on the competition. They start building nests in January and February and usually lay their eggs by mid-February. They are also famous for constructing gigantic nests high in the tops of sturdy trees.

Building such a large nest so early in the year can lead to some issues with snow piling up. This video shows a bald eagle nest in Pennsylvania that got buried overnight. The bald eagle in the video is incubating two eggs despite all the snow. That really goes to show just how dedicated bald eagle parents really are.

 

Before you get worried about a bald eagle being frozen in a nest, just remember that snow is a great insulator. The bald eagle in the video actually had a very cozy night under that nest igloo.
