This is the third season of this nest cam. 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. Mom is Liberty and Dad is Freedom. They have been nesting in this tree for about 13 yrs now but there is not a lot of history on the nest before the camera was installed and started broadcasting in 2015. The nest is 75' up in an oak tree.

History of the nest starting 2015

Fledged- An eaglet jumped up on the cam and pushed it down so we were not able to see much action and also there was PS on the lens

Watching the eagles is fun but sometimes it is hard to tell which one is which. Obviously the one that lays the egg is the female but after that it get hard to tell. Here are a few indicators to help you identify them. Even then it sometimes is hard. Females generally brood the eggs and eaglets over night. Our nest here is no different.

Dad or Freedom has a notch in his neck line, can be seen most of the time but not always. At the moment one of his center tail feathers is shorter causing a nice little indent in the tail arrangement. His wing tips or the primaries are shorter then Mom's and when crossed on the back do not extend to the tail.

Mom or Liberty is larger as most females are. Her neckline can look straight but it has a little rise in the middle. Her wing tips almost touch the end of her tail and she doesn't always cross them.
