Bald Eagles in Connecticut

Driving with Eric on I-95 somewherein the middle of Connecticut, I saw a bald eagle nest in a cell phone tower on the side of the highway. Bald eagles build the biggest, messiest nests, so they're easy to identify. What was really exciting was that I could see an eagle flyign up to the nest. Bald eagles are fairly common again around here, but I haven't actually seen one in the wild since I was 13 on a family vacation to Yellowstone.
