Bald eagle pair returns to park for second year


BRECKSVILLE, Ohio — A pair of bald eagles have returned to their nest in Cuyahoga Valley National Park to take up residency for a second year.

In 2007, the pair raised one eaglet, the first successful nest in Cuyahoga County in over 70 years. The nest is located in the Pinery Narrows area north of Station Road Bridge Trailhead in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The National Park Service will close certain areas surrounding the nest to human traffic to minimize disturbance.

The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail will remain open to moving traffic, but closed to stopping and standing for any length of time.


Although recently removed from the endangered species list, the bald eagle is still protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Both federal laws prohibit taking, killing, selling or otherwise harming eagles, their nests or eggs.
