There was a time when very few Americans could get a glimpse of the majestic national symbol of the United States- the bald eagle.Times have changed, and now those graceful aggressive hunters swoop over the waters of the Maumee River, Lake Erie and other waterways of the BuckeyeState.In 1979, there were only 4 bald eagle nests in the entire state.The Ohio Department of Natural Resources now reports the number of bald eagle nests is approaching 300.This is the time of year eagles are hatching eggs, from their lofty perches in tall trees near a body of water.Their favorite food is fish they snatch from the waters below.At last count, there were 5 known bald eagle nests in Henry County, and a half dozen in Defiance County.
