Many professional and amateur photographers from Ohio and Western Pennsylvania have captured images of these bald eagles that nest in a large dead tree near Columbiana, Ohio. Amateur photographer Gary Grimm, of Beaver, PA snapped this image on February 2 last year of the birds in a mating position.

Grimm said he captured the complete mating sequence during that photo session. "I got the arrival, cooing together, synchronized looking in multiple directions and than mating. It was a thrill," said Grimm.

The eagle nest is located along Lipply Road, Beaver Township (Mahoning County, OH), near the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center. The nesting tree is about 1/4 mile from state Route 7.

The eagles are known as the "Pine Lake eagles", as their nest is located just south of the lake.

The pair of eagles have produced several eaglets over the years. In 2018 a pair of juvenile birds have been photographed.

A recent count of 221 pairs of nesting bald eagles have been found in Ohio, according to the ODNR. Visit the ODNR website (www.wildlife.ohiodnr.gov) for more information about eagles.
