The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania and CSE flipped the switch Thursday on a new webcam at the Pittsburgh Hays bald eagle nest.

The nest along with the webcam now has views of the Monongahela River, the hills of Pittsburgh’s South Side and beyond. Although most of the camera angles will be trained tightly to the nest, viewers can expect some interesting shots of the eagles with a Pittsburgh backdrop this season.

The live stream may be viewed at aswp.org/pages/hays-nest or csecorporation.com/Pittsburgh-Hays-Bald-Eagle-Cam .

The camera will broadcast in high definition with sound, and the stream will include a rewind feature that allows viewers to see up to two hours of earlier nest activity. CSE Corp. was formerly known as PixController, an environmental surveillance equipment company known for its wildlife webcams.

“We are excited to bring the Bald Eagle webcams into viewers’ homes again this year,” said Jim Bonner, executive director,Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. “Audubon and CSE have helped the people of Pittsburgh — and really people all over the world — to become connected to the Hays Bald Eagles. We look forward to another year of both viewing the birds and continuing our successful Bald Eagle distance learning programs with local schools, which allow students to watch the eagles while asking real-time questions to environmental educators.”

The Hays webcam is a collaborative project between CSE and Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, with help from Arborel Tree Service, a Davey Company.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
