PERKINS TWP.

The trees behind the Old Dutch Tavern have been disappointingly empty since the bald eagles lost their nest to a wind storm in spring.

Now, a group of local businesses, conservation organizations and residents want to welcome back their old friends. On Tuesday morning, they erected a 40-foot-tall nesting platform and constructed a makeshift nest using branches and the mossy lining collected from the old nest.
