The well-known bald eagles in Hays first made their nest in the current spot in the fall of 2013, and that inspired the collaboration between the Pennsylvania Game Commission and PixController.

The partnership resulted in a devoted online following and interest in the eagles' nest building and egg laying/sitting activities — all made possible by a 24-hour a day camera.

Now, you can see what the camera looks like (above), how it first went up and why it's able to operate around the clock (solar panels) thanks to a short montage PixController uploaded on Wednesday.
