HARMAR (KDKA) – The bald eagles at the nest in Harmar are tending to at least one eaglet.
According to the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, an eaglet hatched Thursday morning.
Behavioral changes in the eagles are what alerted experts to the hatching.
“One of the adult Bald Eagles was observed repeatedly tugging at something in the bottom of the nest, then leaning over in an adjacent spot. One of those times what appeared to be a piece of food was seen in its beak. It disappeared when its beak came back up. This indicates that the adult was feeding an eaglet,” the Audubon Society said in a press release.
The nest is located near the Hulton Bridge along Route 28.
The Audubon Society expects to know the exact number of eaglets in the nest within the next few weeks.
