State’s Only National Park Home To Bald Eagles
The frigid weather hasn't kept a pair of bald eagles from nesting again in a northeastern Ohio national park.
The pair is nesting in the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) Valley National Park in Brecksville south of Cleveland. To provide privacy, rangers have closed the area and restricted use of trails.
The restrictions will be in place through July 31. The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, popular with joggers and cyclists, remains open.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer (bit.ly/TsW2QG) says bald eagles returned to the Cuyahoga Valley park in 2006, after an absence of 70 years.
Nestings failed in 2009 and 2011, but eaglets have successfully hatched other years.
