Yesterday morning the first egg hatched at the Harmar bald eagle nest high above the Allegheny River.
In the midst of April snow his parents were very attentive as he made his way out of the egg. Fortunately the snow was gone by afternoon. (video from Audubon Society of Western PA (ASWP))
Meanwhile over by the Monongahela River, the Hays eaglet is now eleven days old and will be an “only child” this season. The last egg is not viable though it’s still in the nest. ASWP posted this snapshot yesterday on their Pittsburgh Eagles Facebook page.
Watch the Harmar eaglecam for the second egg to hatch in the days ahead.
Keep tabs on the Hays eaglet at the Hays live feed.
