Our Port Tobacco River Park Bald Eagles Have Names!

Introducing … Chandler & Hope!

After 251 submissions, and a vote on the final five, we have names for our famous Charles County raptors. We are very happy that our Bald Eagles are named after the historic landmark Chandler’s Hope, which overlooks our nest. Charles County Parks department really made this fun, and more eggcitement is yet to come! Please join in and watch the Port Tobacco River Park eagle nest cam at We have three eggs incubating and expect hatching of the first laid egg to take place on March 7, with subsequent hatchings on March 10 and March 13, 2019.
