It’s that time of year again when Southwestern Pennsylvania’s bald eagles refurbish their nests and start to lay eggs. Two Pittsburgh area nests, Hays and USS Irvin, are in the midst of Egg Watch.
Hays Bald Eagles:
Yesterday morning the camera was zoomed out to see both eagles at the nest tree. It will zoom close to watch for eggs. UPDATES
- 1st egg at Hays nest, 17 Feb 2023 @5:23pm! Click here for 1st egg video.
- 2nd egg at Hays nest, 20 Feb 2023 @5:23pm (amazing timing!) 2nd egg video.
By the time you read this the first egg may have arrived, but watch for a second in the day(s) ahead. Here’s how:
- View the Hays eaglecam at the Audubon Society of Western PA’s Hays Bald Eagle Nest Camera.

- As soon as an egg is laid, visit eaglestreamer.org for the hatch and fledge countdown clock.
USS Irvin Bald Eagles:
This pair has been on site since 2019 and on camera since December 2021. There is no in-person viewing location so check them out on the USS Irvin eaglecam.
