Bald Eagle In Pa. Protects Eggs In Snow Storm

Published: Tuesday, March 03, 2015


Excitement about two bald eagles has increased to a fever pitch around central Pennsylvania, as people observe the Pennsylvania Game Commission's bald eagle camera in York County. The live-streaming camera was installed this year in a tree near Codorus State Park, just outside Hanover.

Since then, two eggs have appeared in the nest, and people have watched and commented on the eagles' behavior.

Travis Lau, press secretary for the Game Commission and a Penn Township resident, has had the local eagles nest on his radar for several years. The nest has overlooked Lake Marburg for more than a decade.
