But the most important place we're spotting eagles is not on YouTube, but in the sky, sitting on their massive nests or diving for fish on local waterways, said Roger Coup, wildlife management supervisor for the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
The 100 or so pairs living in northwestern Pennsylvania, part of more than 250 active nests in Pennsylvania, are part of an important conservation success story, Coup said. "A lot of factors went into the eagle's recovery," he said. But it's more than that, Coup said. "The fact that they are also our national emblem and the fact that they have made such a remarkable recovery, I think that touches people," he said.

Roger Coup, a biologist with the Game Commission's Northwest Office in Franklin, Venango County, also confirmed that coyotes are expanding their range into more developed suburban areas.

They're even lured by pet food, table scraps and garbage. "They're just not averse to being near people. They have adapted well," he said. They are not to be feared, he said, though a healthy avoidance of all wildlife is always advised. He said coyotes are not a ready carrier of rabies and their instinct is to avoid people "to the point that you won't even know that they're there.
