    High winds didn't just knock down power lines in Pittsburgh, they also knocked down a tree that was home to an eagle's nest.

    The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania has a camera that live streams video of the nest. But on Monday morning, all it was showing was the downed tree where the nest had been.

    Winds that gusted up to 60 mph Sunday knocked over the tree about 9:45 p.m.

    Bill Powers, CEO of PixController, a company that worked with the Pennsylvania Game Commission to install the camera four years ago, says one of the eagles was sitting on an egg in the nest when the winds toppled the tree.

    Audubon Society director Jim Bonner is hopeful that the birds will nest again in the area if they survived the storm. High Winds Do Damage Around Philly RegionHigh Winds Do Damage Around Philly Region
