Pittsburgh Hays Bald Eagle Nest

A pair of Bald Eagles are nesting within 5 miles of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania along the Monongahela River.

The Hays bald eagle pair first started nesting along the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh in 2013. A nest was observed by workers at the Keystone Iron and Metal Company. The pair successfully hatched one eaglet but on June 6, 2013 a strong storm blew the nest down and the parents successfully fledged the eaglet on the ground. The follow year the Hays eagle pair build a new nest in the location it is today. A camera was installed on this new nest in December of 2013.
