  3. I saw an eagle in the copley/akron area a few weeks ago. Nice to see one so close to home.
  4. Have seen a pair of immature eagles flying around Meander Reservior they were attempting to snag a diving duck out of a flock sitting on the lake. Funny to watch as the duck would dive every time the eagle got close.

    Couple years back, while driving, I had a full colored mature one soaring low over one of the side roads around Meander,, they are awesome !

    My son and I were smallmouth fishing on Rocky River in early fall when we saw one fly right over us. Man was it huge.

    I guess they have to be 3 or 4 before they get the white coloration in them they are very impressive to see
  7. Big Fish, I have seen them around Martins Ferry before too. I was fishing down by the mill in Ferry and one was flying down river. I have also seen a pair by Rayland last year. There is also that huge osprey nest at the top of the power lines just north of Rayland. I have only seen the eagles a few times and my dad wants to see them so bad. Years ago he said they would come back to the area but he has yet to see them in person.

    Take your dad down to Pike Island Dam. Get there just at daylight and watch down river. Almost every morning at least one fly's upriver past the dam....
