Highlights of 2017 – The Hanover bald eagle family had a successful 2017 season with both eggs hatching and both nestlings fledging. The first egg appeared on the evening of February 10 and the second on the evening of the 13th. March 20 broke with a new eaglet in the nest and second hatched the following day. The eaglets began branching over the Memorial Day holiday and by mid-June we weren’t seeing much of them. The live streams closed on July 11. We thank the landowners, neighbors, and Codorus State Park staff for being our eyes, ears, and feet on the ground. We thank HDOnTap for providing the live stream service and Comcast Business for providing the necessary internet connection. We thank you all for watching and learning about Pennsylvania wildlife with us.
Highlights of 2016 – The live stream began December 17 shortly after the installation of two new cameras and audio equipment. Eggs were laid on February 18 and 21. March 28 one of the eggs hatched; the nestling died two days later, perhaps injured by a branch being moved in the nest. The other egg never hatched and remained n the nest until May 23 when one of the adults removed the remnants from the nest. There are many factors that can influence the success of a nest. We do not know what caused the nesting failure in this specific instance. We do know that the eagles using the Hanover nest have produced successful young during many past years, and that they have had nest failures in other years. This is not an uncommon occurrence for raptors, nor for wildlife species in general. The stream was shut down on June 1st so agency staff could devote time to other projects.
Highlights of 2015: Enjoy some great video of Tuesday, March 24, 2015, when there was only one eaglet in the nest as seen on WNEP-TV’s Power To Save Special.
