Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018 — Carillon Historical Park has two new, and vary rare raptors making themselves at home.
>> PHOTOS: Bald Eagles at Carillon Historical Park
A pair of bald eagles has been diligently constructing a nest at Dayton’s historical park.
The eagles have taken up residence high in a Sycamore tree above the John W. Berry, Sr. Wright Brothers Aviation Center, home to the original 1905 Wright Flyer III, the world's first practical airplane. Long considered an endangered species, bald eagles were entirely absent from Dayton from 1938 to 2008, according to Dayton History.
Carillon Historical Park's Aviation Center, a tribute to the originators of manned, powered, heavier-than-air flight, exhibits more original Wright brothers' artifacts than anywhere else in the world. Displays include the 1902 Korona V camera, which captured one of the most famous images in human history, the photo of the first successful airplane flight of December 17, 1903. The 1898 Singer sewing machine used by the brothers to sew muslin fabric on their aircraft, the Wright family Bible, Orville Wright's toolbox, Wilbur Wright's traveling bag, and a rare experimental engine are among the other highlights.
The public is welcome to catch a glimpse of the eagles at the park during operating hours. Regular admission fees of $5 per child (3-17); $8 per adult (18-59); and $7 per senior (60+) do apply. Dayton History members and those under age 3 are admitted free of charge.
