Welcome to the Pittsburgh’s Hays Bald Eagle Cam in collaboration with PixCams.com and the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania.
This live video feed has been granted a Special Permit by the Pennsylvania Game Commission for educational purposes. The Game Commission’s mission is: To manage wild birds, wild mammals and their habitats for current and future generations.
Note: The camera will be live streaming from 8AM until 8PM to conserve battery power. At the moment we have a problem with the network cable that is causing the stream to drop and buffer. This will be fixed later this year.

A pair of Bald Eagles are now 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 following year the Hays eagle pair built a new nest in the location it is today. A camera was installed on this new nest in December of 2013.
