Psssst. Do you know what Hanover PA’s best kept secret is?? Well, according to my geeky National Geographic self, THE HANOVER BALD EAGLE CAM!!! That’s right folks, there is an Eagle Cam right here in my little home town and the best part is you can view the nest and the bald eagles, Liberty and Freedom up close and personal LIVE in HD right from your living room couch.
In 2015, I was glued to the LIVE streaming and witnessed the eaglets hatching. It was so exciting!!
I just started watching the nest again and apparently, I missed the April hatchlings. I learned that sadly, the eggs did not survive. Liberty is the female bald eagle (the larger of the pair). If you care to tune in, the eagles are not always in their nest. I have found that they frequent the nest in the early morning hours and sometimes at dusk. What a thrill it is to see that!
I absolutely love the names of the Hanover, PA eagle pair – LIBERTY AND FREEDOM. How appropriate and symbolic for the troubling times we are facing as a Nation. With all the government crackdowns and over-policing of people and businesses due to the pandemic, I believe we all need a reminder of where our liberties and freedoms come from. It is my belief that our RIGHTS come from our Creator.
Like my bestie always reminds me, I have Jesus ya'll, and an immune system! I will not fear!
Now, excuse me while I get back to my nest watching addiction. Trust me, it's far better than watching the news.
Stay informed, be safe, and above all stay healthy!
