A pair of bald eagles have been spotted constructing a nest at Carillon Historical Park in Dayton. Completely absent from the Dayton region from 1938 until 2008, and classified for decades as an endangered species, this raptor duo are the first bald eagles to nest on the property in park history. They have taken up residence high in a Sycamore tree above the John W. Berry, Sr. Wright Brothers Aviation Center, which houses the original 1905 Wright Flyer III, the world's first practical airplane. These photos were taken by photographer Jason Hale and provided by Carillon Historical Park.
