In 2019 a pair of bald eagles built a nest near the Monongahela River at USSteel’s Irvin Works in West Mifflin. In 2020 they fledged one youngster. In 2021 they fledged two. This year we can watch them live on the new USS eaglecam installed this month by PixCams of Murrysville.

The Irvin bald eagles are the second pair to nest along the Monongahela River in Allegheny County. Their famous eaglecam neighbors, the Hays bald eagles, are 5 miles away as the crow flies and more than 11 miles away if the eagles follow the river route as shown on this map generated by gmap-pedometer.
