Bald eagle cam starts streaming on game commission website

HANOVER, Pa. (AP) – An eagle cam overlooking a bald eagle nest in Pennsylvania has begun live-streaming through the state Game Commission’s website.

The game commission installed a pair of high-definition cameras over the nest of two bald eagles near Codorus State Park in Hanover, York County. The commission says infrared technology will provide images 24 hours a day. Microphones within the units will capture the sounds.

Facebook group donated money to keep the camera rolling after the budget crisis threatened its installation.

This is the second time that cameras have been installed at a nest 75 feet high in a tree near the state park. About 1.5 million people tuned in last year to watch the birds hatch and raise two eaglets.

The commission says there’s no guarantee that eaglets will be successfully hatched, reared and fledged from the nest this year.
