Hey IrishEyes,

The tree line and rock face along Route 28 in Harmar have become eagle central as two juvenile eagles fresh out of the nest above the busy highway flit about with their parents.

The birds officially graduated, flying for the first time on Saturday, according to the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania and a Fox Chapel photographer who spent the weekend following the birds.

Known as “HR8” and “HR9,” the two young birds are the eighth and ninth eaglets hatched by the Harmar pair since they began nesting on a bluff above Route 28 and the Allegheny River in 2014.

Gina G. Gilmore saw both birds out of the nest over the weekend and Monday. One of them was stationed just outside the nest, in a good position for feeding from parents, while the other juvenile ventured out further along the Allegheny River.

Gilmore documented the more adventurous eagle making a rough landing in some vegetation along the Allegheny and hanging upside down for about 15 minutes. The bird eventually right-sided itself.

The eagle family will continue to frequent the Harmar and Allegheny River area for at least the next month as the young birds hone their flight skills and learn to hunt. Their parents will continue to feed them.

I agree, IrishEyes. I hope they're able to put a nest cam up in Harmar next year. I guess they have to wait and see if the eagles decide to stay or build another nest. Thanks for all you do to try and keep us informed. :)

With thanks to Gina G. Gilmore, local observer/photographer, and the Harmar Bald Eagles of Pittsburgh Facebook group, I have learned that HR8 fledged at 7:11 pm on June 22 - and HR9 followed twenty minutes later!

HR8 was last seen on August 4; HR9 hung around a little longer, and was last seen August 11.

Congratulations, Harmar family, on a wonderful season!

Fund Drive for Hard Drives

Good afternoon, everyone! I have just learned that we do not have the hard drives we need to record our cams as we approach little chick time - and we do not have the funds necessary to buy them.

These are the high resolution drives that are connected directly to the cams at the site, making it possible to record high quality videos of events at the nests - and we usually have them up and running before the eggs are laid. As you know, we already have eggs at three of our four nests, and they are likely any day now at the fourth nest - so time is of the essence.

Our tech person Ken is estimating that it will cost about $7000 to buy the high quality, high capacity drives needed for our 9 cams, and while we are keeping up with our regular monthly expenses, we don't have the extra money needed to buy and install the hard drives.

I know this is a hard time financially for many of us, with many businesses closed - but it may also be a time when some of us are staying home and watching the eagles after cancelling planned trips or dinners out - and I'd like to ask those who can to contribute towards these hard drives.

I decided to check for news on this nest and found this

But in the last several days, Gilmore glimpsed the gray fuzzy head of one, maybe two eaglets.
