Checking out the local eagle
Before you watch fireworks on July 4, you can check out America's national bird, the bald eagle, at the Hays bald eagle nest.
Representatives of the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 4 with spotting scopes and binoculars, to help you view the two adult bald eagles and the rare little eaglet that hatched in mid-April.
The nest stands along the Monongahela River. To get there, walk or bike from the Hot Metal Bridge in the South Side along the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. Don't walk along the railroad or park in the Sandcastle parking lot, though; these areas are private property. Details: www.aswp.org
