UPDATE: Thank you all for joining us on this fantastic adventure. The camera streaming a live image of a family of bald eagles in Hanover was turned off in early July. We continue to hear reports from folks on the ground that both eaglets and adults are being seen flying and perching in the area around the nest regularly. This brief peek into the lives of this bald eagle family was brought to you by the coordinated efforts of the Pennsylvania Game Commission, HDOnTap, Comcast Business, Friends of Codorus State Park and several other partners. Check out this quick note about the camera from executive director, Matt Hough.
During the nesting season, bald eagles are sensitive to disruptions such as loud noises and sudden movements. The Pennsylvania Game Commission encourages eagle watchers to stay at least 1,000 feet from bald eagle nests to reduce stress on the nesting eagles. Before visiting an eagle nest, please review bald eagle nest etiquette.
Documentary – Celebrating 30 Years of Restoration
The bald eagle's history in Pennsylvania is a precarious one. Only 30 years ago, we had a mere three nests left in our entire state. With the help of the Canadian government, several agencies including the Pennsylvania Game Commission brought bald eagle chicks back to their states to reintroduce bald eagles to the Northeast. Today, Pennsylvania boasts more than 250 nests. This 22-minute documentary is the story of that success.
