Bald eagles nesting in Paulding County
Thursday, January 10, 2013 3:52 PM

Roger Lilly of Antwerp shared with the Progress this photo he took earlier this week. A pair of bald eagles is building a nest along the Maumee River in Paulding County. He doesn't want to disclose the exact location due to concerns about people scaring off the birds.

This may be the first bald eagle nest in the county. The pair is the first Lilly has seen here, although many reported seeing eagles at Black Swamp Nature Center in early December.

An Ohio Department of Natural Resources map of nesting bald eagles in Ohio for 2011 shows sites in surrounding counties, including Defiance, Henry, Williams and Putnam, but none in Paulding County. The closest has been at Power Dam in Defiance County.
