This is first time I have seen an Eagle on Ohio River. This one perched above us at the end of Gallipolis Island and watched us the whole time we fished there. These pictures don't do justice to its size.

They're along the Scioto, but I may see 1 every couple years. Went on a yak trip to start the summer on the Maumee River. They got a bunch up there.

He's been coming to the island since last winter. I haven't seen a mate or anything. Some people say they've seen another one but there's also some ospreys around and if you're driving by you might mistake an osprey for an eagle.

I've always been facinated by them.
We see them occasionally early in the spring at Pickwick Lake in Tennessee, and again in the North Channel in Ontario in May/June.
Majestic creatures!!!!

There is a nesting pair just outside of Kingston that I watched this spring. Very amazing bird and to say their nest is rather large is a understatement!!

The pike island and new cumberland pools have several nesting pairs along their lengths. Also a pair at highlandtown lake in columbiana county. I fish there a lot and this is the first year I've seen them there. Lots of ospreys too.
