Bald eagle, eaglets nesting in Warren

Bald eagle nest in Warren, Ohio

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The bald eagle population is making a comeback in the state of Ohio.

A viewer tipped our newsroom off about a bald eagle nest on North River Road in Warren. It appears to be a mother eagle and her babies.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said there are also nests around Mosquito Lake and in the Niles area. In 2013, there were approximately 187 nests around the state. Today, the ODNR estimates that number has grown to 200.

Several people have been stopping along the road to take pictures of the bald eagle.

“It is something that is very different. It is something you don’t get to see all the time. And hopefully we will get to see it go for its first fly,” Eric Fellenger said.

The bald eagle is no longer on the endangered list. However, it is still a federally protected species and protected under the Bald Eagle Act.
