A pair of bald eagles is nesting in the Hays neighborhood of Pittsburgh, south of Downtown along the Monongahela River. Because industrialization caused long-term damage to the region’s ecosystem, experts say it has probably been more than 250 years since bald eagles last nested along Pittsburgh’s three rivers. With the help of the Canadian government, several agencies, including the Pennsylvania Game Commission, brought bald eagle chicks back to their states.
