Not only did I find one nest but I've actually found another one too. Both have eagles setting on eggs. Yeah! :D :D :D Here's pics and video from the first one.

An explanation I've heard for the second nest is that this used to be a heron nest tree.

Rhoda, yay!
You may find it to be your second home if its close to where you live! I have 1 local favorite but try to keep on eye on 2 others, too. -(I) could camp out just to watch 'em! So addicted.

Keep us posted!

That's the tree of choice for eagles in Indiana. I don't think we even have loblolly pines.
