Eagles over Rocky Fork Lake

Earlier in the winter my wife and I were on our way to Bainbridge and saw a mature bald eagle sitting in the tops of a sycamore tree, surveying the waters of Paint Creek. It was the first time either of us had seen eagles in the wild in Ohio. A week later we saw it again, sitting in the same tree top.

Today on Facebook a friend posted a couple of photos of eagle activity around Rocky Fork Lake. I don’t know who took the photos but I’m pretty sure they were taken very recently. I knew there were eagles at the lake but wasn’t aware there were so many.

  1. These photos were taken by Jeff Hickey and were posted on the Birding Ohio FB group, dated Jan 24. Someone earlier in the week reported seeing 15 bald eagles at RFL. Amazing!
