Hanover Eagles, Rachel’s Falcons Hunker Down Against Snowstorm To Protect Eggs

The DEP/Game Commission peregrine falcon cam at the Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg found the falcons doing the same thing for their eggs.  Click Here to watch a time-lapse video of the falcon protecting the eggs as snow slowly builds up.  Click Here to watch live.
