York County Eagle


This is one of my "City" Eagles.
They have taken up residence despite some very busy traffic and tons of people.
He sits on one of 2 towers every day and sometimes I think he actually likes the attention

The fledgling is actually larger than this male.

Re: York County Eagle

And they are stopping a paving project for these birds?

Sorry, but it seems they are well adjusted to "city" life.

The nest below our camp in Tioga County, DCNR actually rerouted a hiking trail away from the nest. Meanwhile, the birds sit right over the creek while raft, after raft, after raft floats by. Add in all the rail trail traffic and these birds are not flustered by humans in the least.

I don't think they need as much protection as we think they do.

Re: York County Eagle

The construction company took it upon themselves to delay the project as not to disrupt these awesome birds.
I applaud their dedication and decision.

Some birds may adjust but many will be spooked off the nest at very inopportune times.
If a female is continuously flushed off the nest while incubating the egg may become cold and cause the loss of the eaglet inside.
Even though Eagles are more abundant than in the past, they are still on the T&E list and need protection.
It is also the symbol of our nation which to most means a lot.

BTW that was taken through a pair of binos...I was about 100 yards from that bird
