Hello! Just wondering --- have the 2 Hanover eaglets fledged now?? I see the cam isn't on anymore. Is that because you know the eaglets are off on their own now? Thank you! Judi Zollers

The eagles nest collapsed after the lose of the babies, this has been one very heartbreaking nesting season. Will the Pennsylvania Game Commission be repairing or building a new nest? If the eagles do this on their own, how will you get the cameras put in place?

Hello, My homeroom students were enjoying the Elk cam in the morning. We don't have them where we live, but a lot of my students hunt. Will it be back up?

I'd watched the Hanover eagle nest last season, so heartbreaking. Now I understand that after, the nest fell apart. It seemed such a nice nest. Have you seen any activity, parents trying to rebuild. I don't know when they would in that part of the states, the weather. When will we know. How will we know.

Mary Sheppard SAYS:

Please let us know if the eagles came back to re-build their nest this year. After last year's tragedies, I would so like to know if they make an effort this year, and if we will be able to watch as we have for the past two years. It has been so educating, and your people do a really fine job of keeping us posted when the cameras "go down". Thank you for all you've done in the past, and I hope to be able to enjoy the site at Hanover, Pa. again this year.

Will u be turning the cams on for the eagles this year? If so when and have they been rebuilding the nest? I really enjoy watching them every year. hope this yr is a good one.

Nancy Counter SAYS:

As a follower of these eagles for a couple of years, I certainly know of our tragic 2016. Especially the nest caving in. But can't someone get back to us to let us know if you will be streaming this year. Did they rebuild the nest, or build elsewhere, is the Pennsylvania Game Commission still watching them. I and others would appreciate an answer as we're very attached to them and care deeply.

Good Morning,everyone! 12/20/16.; A big thank you to those local folks in Hanover,Pa Eagle Cam and Karen Lippy, and Others at Codorus State Park in Hanover,Pa. for sharing their photographs and eye witness accounts of the re-building of Freedom and Liberty's nest and watching them bring in branches and rearranging them for their 2016/17 nesting season. And flying up and down the Lake Marburg. Eagerly waiting for both day and Infrared cams to be turned on and get educated,dear Pa Game Commission and HDOnTAP!! Happy! Thnx.

This is my third year watching those beautiful birds . In 2015 it was a learning experience for me to see how gentle they were when feeding time started when the eggs hatched . I really enjoyed watching those young eagles , up until they were fully grown , when they would excercise their wings and in the process they hit the camera and that's when the video stopped showing them . It was disappointing not to see them after that . The outcome for the eagles in 2016 was very sad as they both would not accept the outcome . It was more sad for me to see their loss and kinda shared their loss .

Nancy Counter SAYS:

I was asked if I was live streaming Hanover, unfortunately, no, but I check in throughout the day. I watch several bird cams and they are close to my heart, especially our Hanover eagles, as they were my first introduction to bird cams. What a joy they can be.
