MINNESOTA--A professional climber and eagle expert stepped in to help a young eaglet on Friday.

The rescue effort of the young raptor named Harmon was caught on camera.

Many in Minnesota have been watching Harmon via a video feed streamed live online.

Some observers noticed he was not moving around the nest.

That's when the experts stepped in to check on the struggling bird. They found that Harmon's wing was snagged in the nest.

Harmon has now been removed and sent to Minnesota's Raptor Center for care.

They hope to return him to his home once recovered.

Harmon's brother died April 30th after falling from the nest.
