December 17, 2015 The Game Commission is pleased to be able to begin live streaming two cameras highlighting a bald eagle nest in Hanover, Pa. through a partnership with HDOnTap, Comcast Business, and the generosity of Friends of Codorus State Park, Codorus State Park and many others. Both cameras have audio and one camera has infra-red technology to offer viewing opportunities throughout the night. Enjoy! And be aware that nature is sometimes difficult to watch.

HWF would like to welcome the Hanover/Codorus State Park bald eagle cam to our large and growing family of North American eagle cams. This is the second year for a cam on this nest. It is brought to us by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, HDOnTap, Comcast Business, Friends of Codorus State Park and several other partners. We wish to thank them for this new look into the lives of a bald eagle family! This pair of bald eagles has made its home in Codorus State Park, just outside Hanover, in rural York County, Pennsylvania. They got their names through a contest where local people voted on names. The result? Liberty and Freedom!!

*** Please take note! --- The Pennsylvania Game Commission has added the following language to the cam page: "Images presented on this live stream are the property of the Pennsylvania Game Commission and may be used for educational and non-commercial purposes, and to assist news media in promoting Game Commission news and wildlife. Images may not be sold. The agency expects all images to be accompanied with a photo credit (example Image courtesy of Pennsylvania Game Commission)." Please respect their wishes and include the credit line in any posts or series of connected posts that have pictures or videos, and if you record and post videos, make sure it's in the description of the video, even if the logo is present. Thanks! ~JudyB

These are an HD cams that are hard wired to a power source.

This webcam will be broadcasting until the resident pair departs the area in early July. The eagles have maintained this nest for 11 years although not much is known about the nest history. This nest is 75 feet in the air in an oak tree. The female is expected to lay her eggs sometime in mid Frbruary.

The bald eagle's history in Pennsylvania is a precarious one. Only 30 years ago, there were only three nests left in our entire state. With the help of the Canadian government, several agencies including the Pennsylvania Game Commission brought bald eagle chicks back to their states to reintroduce bald eagles to the Northeast. Today, Pennsylvania boasts more than 250 nests.

A little history on this nest --
The first record of an active nest in this area is from 2005. Records indicate that eaglets have fledged eight times, most often two at a time. There are no records indicating that any of the adult nesting eagles have been banded or otherwise marked. These cameras (provided by HDOnTap) were installed in November 2015. The cameras are powered by a hard line running down the tree to an electrical panel several feet from the base of the tree. Comcast Business is providing the internet service. Together, these partners are creating this dependable, high-quality stream. Friends of Codorus State Park supplied the bucket lift and other items necessary for installation and the landowner is donating the electricity to power the camera. Codorus State Park staff have been instrumental with on the ground staff and in facilitating this project. The Game Commission is grateful for all those involved in providing this spectacular view of nature at work.

Location of the "Hanover" nest --


Codorus State Park is a 3,329-acre Pennsylvania state park in Heidelberg, Manheim, Penn, and West Manheim Townships in southwestern York County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The park was created around Lake Marburg, an artificial lake covering 1,275 acres about three miles southeast of Hanover, Pennsylvania and is named for Codorus Creek, which forms the lake.

From the cam folks --


Codorus State Park, Hanover, PA., has some exciting news today. "Working with HDonTap, our Friends group and the Game Commission, we are starting the process to put the Eagle Camera back in the nest again for this season. The project is very labor intensive and will require several weeks of finetuning the camera and making sure that everything is working properly. Everybody wants to make sure that we are at 100% before turning it on for the public. We ask for your patience and understanding while waiting for the next chapter in our local eagles lives. Thank you for your interest and to those of you who have contributed to this project

Breaking news for the nest

This just in from a Facebook post

BREAKING NEWS FROM HDONTAP!!! In a message dated 12/14/2015 12:38:03 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, info@hdontap.com writes:
Hi Richard,

1. We are coordinating a launch of the Hanover Bald Eagle nest cam with the PA Game Commission for this upcoming week.

2. The original POV camera from last year has been repurposed into a new camera housing and installed in the same location! You are correct, an additional camera has been installed with IR capabilities for night time viewing! The new IR camera has zooming capabilities, but cannot pan or tilt. Both cameras will have audio in case we run into Mr and Mrs squirrels'.

Hope this helps,

All the best,

The HDOnTap Support Team

Hi Richard,

Thank you for contacting HDOnTap!

We are coordinating a launch of the Hanover Bald Eagle nest cam with the PA Game Commission for this upcoming week. The original camera from last year has been installed in a new camera housing and placed back in the same location. This camera is a fixed POV covert camera and cannot pan zoom or tilt, although audio was integrated inside the the new housing! The secondary camera has been installed with IR capabilities for night time viewing! Placed above last years camera with a different aspect of the nest. The IR camera has the ability to zoom, but not pan nor tilt and will have a separate audio feed as well.

Hope this helps,

All the best,

The HDOnTap Support Team
