HDOnTap has partnered once again with the Pennsylvania Game Commission to bring you this front seat view of two Bald Eagles during their 2018 breeding season! A second live Eagle Cam with IR was added last year to bring a 24/7 view into the nest. The bald eagle's history in Pennsylvania is a precarious one. Only 30 years ago, Pennsylvania had a mere three nests left in the entire state. With the help of the Canadian government and several agencies including the Pennsylvania Game Commission, bald eagle chicks were brought back to PA to reintroduce bald eagles to the Northeast. Enjoy the live streaming Bald Eagle Nest Cam.
