Letter to the Editor: Eagles in Ohio

Dear Editor:

To be brief, The Building Industry Association of Central Ohio, located in the Columbus, Ohio suburb of Westerville, is very excited to have a pair of our nation’s majestic bald eagles nesting in its own backyard.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife, has put up fencing and posted signs and designated a viewing area for the hundreds of onlookers. We suspect eggs have been laid. Cameras in a neighboring office building are focused on the nest 24/7 and terrific pictures are already circulating.

When we see them each day both in the nest and close up in our field, it is indeed heartwarming to know that the birds may be going off the Endangered Species list due in part to the cooperation and understanding of those in the building industry ("Industry Role Cited in Return of Bald Eagle," 2/20/06).
