I live in NW Ohio and this nest is just about a half mile from my house. This is the first time I've seen an Eagle in it, though. Pretty cool! The Eagle was actually in the nest when I went by the first time but I did not have my camera with me. I went home and grabbed my little pocket camera and when I returned the Eagle was out of the nest, perched on a nearby branch.

Did I ever tell you guys about the eagle feather, the Indian, and the message from God all resulting from a drunken canoe trip?

They're HUGE! I was shocked how big that one was. It was even larger than the big turkey buzzards we see around here. I have a friend who is into photography and has a very nice professional zoom lens on his camera. I'm going to drag him out to see if he can get some really good close-up shots of one of these eagles....

Nice., I have seen them in southeast Ohio along the Ohio river as well. After 40 years of the banning of DDT in USA agriculture the apex bird species are recovering. Those nests are huge.

I just saw two of them at the nest a few minutes ago. One was in the nest and the other perched in a nearby tree. I really need to get my photographer friends to get over there!

I was doing a virus cleaning on my mom's friends computer in her living room one day and caught movement in her Elm tree. I looked up and there sat a big Baldy... It had been decades since I had seen one last. Now they are everywhere along the Missouri river here in So Dak

Unless you are a Native American that uses Bald Eagle feathers in your religious ceremonies, do NOT get caught with one! Super bad JuJu results!!!!!!!!!!!!
