HANOVER, Pa. (WHTM) – A pair of bald eagles at Codorus State Park have been rewarded for their toughness and resolve with a new addition to their nest.

The couple’s first egg has hatched.

A live stream from the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s camera near Lake Marburg has already attracted about 643,000 viewers. Now, the eagles’ faithful followers can watch the fledgling grow until it leaves the nest in late-June or early July.

Viewers are still keeping their eyes on a second egg is in the nest. The first egg was laid Valentine’s Day and the second came three days on Feb. 17.

The birds have been a nationwide sensation, particularly during a snowstorm when one of adults allowed itself to be buried in falling snow so that the eggs could remain warm and dry.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission game agency said viewers from more than 140 countries have already watched the live stream.
