As the snow covered more and more of their nest, one of the eagles stayed put to ensure their eggs stayed warm and safe.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission, which placed a camera at the nest and has a live stream on its website, captured the parenting superstars in action on March 5, 2015.

The Commission said that the eagles and their eggs are doing fine and they’ve got another few weeks to go before the eggs hatch.

Now that’s dedicated parenting!
