Bald eagles return to Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Bald eagles are back in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The park reported that two adult birds were spotted Monday engaged in nesting activities in the Pinery Narrows area north of state Route 82 between Summit and Cuyahoga counties, and the immediate area around the nest is again off limits to park visitors.

The nest sits in a small wetland on the Brecksville side of the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland Metroparks’ Brecksville Reservation.

The eagle-nesting zone includes the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tracks on the west of the Cuyahoga River from the state Route 82 bridge north to Fitzwater Road, plus a 30-foot right of way on both sides of the tracks. That area is closed to all pedestrian traffic.
