PINE GROVE - Bald eagles call Sweet Arrow Lake their home and for the first time in recent memory, two babies have hatched there.
"I've been here for 30 years and we've been monitoring the birds here. This is absolutely the first time we've had an eagle's nest here," Denise Donmoyer, president of the Sweet Arrow Lake Conservation Association, said Thursday.

She said the eagles would have constructed the nest in "late January or early February."
