Bald eagles in Pennsylvania guard their nest despite being almost completely covered in snow.

For this tough pair of bald eagles residing in Corodus State Park, spring can’t come soon enough.

Thanks to a webcam set up by the Pennsylvania Game Commission, the public was able to witness an incredible display of parenting in nature. As snow storms hit the region, snow quickly covered the nest. The male and female eagles took turns keeping the two large eggs warm in the nest, despite the snow quickly piling up past their necks.

The weather has significantly improved the last several days, and now the nest only has a dusting of snow. If winter strikes again, however, the Pennsylvania Game Commission told reporters, not to worry. Eagles nest throughout the north, so they are used to adapting to the wintery weather.

The eagle laid her eggs in mid-February, and they have a 35-day incubation period. We can expect the eaglets around March 21. The live “eagle-cam” will be there to document it all.
