WATCH: Eaglet Hatches on Eagle Cam

Viewers of the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Eagle Cam got their first glimpse of an eaglet this morning.

We’ve told you twice now about the bald eagle cam the Pennsylvania Game Commission has set up at a nest in Hanover.

And now, we have an eaglet! An eagle hatched sometime after 8 a.m. this morning in the nest, which is located near Codorus State Park in York County.

One of the eagles has been sitting on the eggs (and eaglet) all day, with the other occasionally returning to the nest. To me, this was the highlight of the afternoon:


With so many people looking at the camera today, service has been spotty. But don’t fret. The eaglet won’t leave the nest until June or July — so you have lots of time left to gaze at it.
