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

Audubon Confirms Hatch in Hays Nest

Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania has confirmed a hatch at the rebuilt Hays Bald Eagle nest. The confirmation is based on the adult eagles’ behaviors. Because the webcam cannot see into the rebuilt nest, there is no visual confirmation of the hatch. However, the parents are exhibiting behaviors consistent with a hatch. They are bringing food into the nest and ripping it into small pieces, then leaning over to feed the eaglet. Audubon will continue to monitor the nest and wishes to thank the eagle watchers on the trail for their continued updates on what’s occurring in the nest. When images are available of the chick, Audubon will distribute them to the media and via social media.
