Bald eagle sticks to nest near Hanover as snow buries it

The ongoing winter storm on Wednesday, March 21, is burying the bald eagle sitting atop eggs in a nest near Hanover - the one that is the focus of a webcam livestreaming through the Pennsylvania Game Commission website - but the bird continues to protect the two eggs.

As during a major snowstorm in mid-March 2017 and the major snowstorm in 2015 that gained, gaining the nest international Internet attention, the adult is staying on the eggs while the snow continues to fall.

Similar scenes are unfolding in more than 200 bald eagle nests across Pennsylvania today, but the nest near Codorus State Park at Hanover is the one being watched by snow-bound enthusiasts through their various screens.

Hatching time could be close.

2. I hope she survives ok... We've lost geese on the nest during late spring snowstorms

It is really tragic.

5. Is this the Hays eagle nest?

If so, everything looks to be fine as of today. The pair did lose 1 of 3 eggs, though, prior to the snowstorm.
