Another eagle

We've been to the park in Huntington where an eagle pair has a nest with an eaglet. Pretty cool.

Ohio has also seen an increase in its eagle population, particularly around Lake Erie. For several years there's been an eagle pair in the Old Woman's Creek nature estuary, and we've seen them there.

But today I saw a new nest. This one is behind a little bar on Perkins Avenue in Sandusky. That's right, behind a bar. The adults were nowhere around, but the eaglet was very evident as it soared overhead, then landed in the nest, which is ina big tree just beyond the parking lot, beer patio, and sand volleyball court. Really. With country music blaring. On a busy street.

DDT bothered eagles--"civilization," not so much.
