Live: Watch Pittsburgh's bald eagles

What do animals do when they’re in the wild?

Emerging technology makes it possible to discover the answer. PixController is the company behind the enormously popular Hays eagle cam that drew millions of viewers for much of 2014. Viewers watched the bald eagles lay eggs, keep them warm during a brutal Pittsburgh winter and manage the nest during and after the hatching and fledgling.

The eagles have returned for 2015, and you can see the stream below. (We also added a non-PixController feed from Australia. Watch the sea eagles in their nest, though it’s generally dark if you’re watching from Pittsburgh during the day.)

This video stream and any advertising therein are controlled by PixController and WildEarth, who are graciously providing free access to the Post-Gazette and an international audience. (See how the camera was installed) 
This webcam is part of an educational program of the Pennsylvania Game Commission run by the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania using equipment supplied by PixController. The camera streams 24/7 (when batteries are charged and temperatures are above zero degrees). The player works on PCs using Chrome and Firefox browsers, and on Apple iOS. For Android support,click here. For details about the educational program, and to report technical problems with the web cam and live feed, contact Audubon at
