New "Harmar" topic started in "Other Raptor Cams."

This is a new bald eagle nestcam in Pennsylvania. Included here is the short story announcing the live cam, a link to the Audubon's webcam page for both the Hays and Harmar cams, an alternate link through the local TV station for just the Harmar cam, and a story and video of the bridge implosion near the Harmar nest. Eagles are both OK!!

Statement from the Audubon Society

Hulton Bridge implosion update: On Tuesday, January 26, the old Hulton Bridge, near the Harmar Bald Eagle nest, was imploded. The Harmar eagles were down river near the Fox Chapel Yacht Club at the time. Our staff member monitoring the eagles said that the birds "didn?t even flinch" at the sound of the implosion.

Songbirds are a culinary delicacy in Cyprus - but catching and eating them is illegal. Even so, the practice is on the rise and could be threatening rare species. Barbaric.
