Audubon confirms Hays eaglet has fledged

Audubon Confirms Fledge of Eaglet in Hays Nest - [Pittsburgh, PA, June 15, 2017] – Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania confirms that the eaglet in the Hays Bald Eagle nest has fledged. The eaglet was seen flying on its own by citizen scientists, and this marks a successful breeding season for the Hays Bald Eagle family, which overcame adversity after its original nest collapsed during a February storm.

Audubon Confirms Hatch in Harmar Eagles' Nest

 Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania confirms an eaglet hatch at the Harmar Bald Eagles’ nest. The confirmation is based on the adult eagles’ behaviors—there is still no visual confirmation of the eaglet. A newly-hatched eaglet is grey, fuzzy, and very small—but grows very quickly. We expect to be large enough to see in about a week’s time via the webcam. This morning, an adult eagle was seen ripping food into small pieces, then leaning over to feed the eaglet (see attached image). Audubon will continue to monitor the nest and will provide images of the eaglet when it’s visible within the nest. At this time, we cannot confirm if there will be more than one eaglet in the nest. The first egg was laid on February 27, 2017. The Harmar Eagle Cam may be viewed at
