This is just something most of us will never see in our lifetime. These eagles are very determined 🙂

A bit of history on the Hanover nest
The first egg of 2015 appeared on Valentine’s Day, February 14 at 5:55 pm. A second egg was laid three days later on February 17 at 4:44 pm. With roughly 35 days of incubation, we’ll be on #eggwatch beginning March 21. We expect any fledglings to have left the nest by late-June or early July. More information on eagles can be found in the links below. The first record of an active nest in this area is from 2005. Out of the ten years on record, eaglets fledged seven times, most often two at a time. There are no records indicating that any of the adult nesting eagles have been banded or otherwise marked. This camera (provided by HDOnTap) was installed in late December 2014 and is slightly larger than a soda can. The camera is powered by a hard line running down the tree to an electrical panel several feet from the base of the tree. Comcast Business is providing the internet service. Together, these partners are creating this dependable, high-quality stream. Friends of Codorus State Park supplied the bucket lift necessary for installation and the landowner is donating the electricity to power the camera. Codorus State Park staff continues to be extremely supportive of this endeavor. The Game Commission is grateful for all those involved in providing this spectacular view of nature at work.
