Full Answer

The eagles take turns incubating two eggs in a large nest constructed mainly of sticks located 75 feet above the ground. It is estimated that the nest has been active since 2005, though not by the same eagle pair. The camera itself does not have any moving parts that make noise and doesn’t emit light that the eagles may find disturbing. A poll was conducted to name the eagles, and Liberty and Freedom were chosen.

Pennsylvania’s eagle population is estimated to be around 2,750, as of 2015, and continues to grow each year. Seventy percent of eagle nests produce at least one chick that fully fledges and leaves the nest.
