Photo of nest showing eaglet and two eggs

The Port Tobacco eagles, Chandler and Hope, have hatched their first eaglet! The eggs were laid on January 31, February 3, and February 5, so we hope the other two eggs will hatch in the next few days. Watch the nest live at

This nest is located in Charles County, Maryland next to the Port Tobacco River at Port Tobacco River Park. It has successfully fledged two eaglets for the last two years. The Port Tobacco River Park Bald Eagle Nest is a wild eagle nest. Please know that there are scenarios that some viewers may find difficult to watch. Interactions with other wildlife, sibling rivalry, and weather can affect the eggs or eaglets. While we hope for a successful season, remember, anything could happen.
