Streaming video available at Game Commission’s website.

The eagle cam is back, and better than ever.

After a successful pilot run in 2014, the Pennsylvania Game Commission today launched its new live stream from a bald-eagle nest, hopefully just in time for viewers to see the laying of the nesting pair’s first egg.
