To celebrate the state's thriving bald eagle population, the Pennsylvania Game Commission installed a live nest-cam late last year near Hanover. For those not watching, a pair of eagles worked together for weeks constructing the nest, taking breaks to swoop down on potential food, all in preparation for the arrival of their eggs.

The first egg appeared on February 14, followed by a second three days later. After a month or so of incubation, the eggs are expected to hatch around March 21. All of the action can be viewed on the live-cam.

One of the more eye-catching frames from months of footage came last week during a snowstorm as one of the eagles remained with the eggs, braving the conditions and buried in snow.
