“Home of the Bald Eagles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2008

If you go to the York Co side of the Norman Wood bridge, turn on the road towards the dam, you will see a Bald Eagles nest in one of the huge electrical towers. The tower is on the left hand side, going towards the dam (it is before you get to the dam)

Very cool to see!
