In Pittsburgh we’re lucky to have three bald eagle nests in Allegheny County:  Hays on the Monongahela River, Harmar on the Allegheny River, and Crescent Township on the Ohio River.

Last weekend the two youngsters at the Harmar nest made their first flight.  Annette and Gerry Devinney were on hand to record their progress on 1 July 2018.  Here are some of Annette’s photos and Gerry’s video.

Below, the two young eagles fly near each other.  They’re looking good.

Woo hoo! They’re playing in the sky.
