Bald eagles spotted nesting in the midstate

Written by The Associated Press | Apr 15, 2013 6:17 AM

(Harrisburg) -- Dozens of new bald eagle nests are being reported across Pennsylvania this spring.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission says new nests have so far been sighted in Lebanon, Lancaster, Northumberland, and Schuylkill counties.

New nests have also been seen in six other counties.

Earlier this year a midwinter bald eagle survey documented 101 adult bald eagles, along with 65 immature ones and four birds of an undetermined age.

Game commission officials also say they've identified peregrine falcons at 40 sites and that five pairs were known to have laid eggs by late march.
