The first bald eagle egg of 2024 was laid at the nest in Hays, the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania announced Tuesday, Feb. 20.

Footage from a 24/7 camera feed of the nest revealed the bald eagle parents are incubating the egg. The society said one adult will remain in the nest at all times with the egg. It can be seen when one of the adult eagles stands.

The male bald eagle is a new mate for the female, whose former mate of 10 years disappeared in September. The nest has been on the banks of the Monongahela River since 2013.

The society said a new web camera with increased resolution was installed to produce sharper images of the eagles, which can be viewed online via a dedicated 24/7 website: aswp.org/pages/hays-nest.
