State officials and birders are trying to keep the eagles' location a secret. They don't want curious onlookers to scare the birds from their nest. U-S Fish and Wildlife Service officials say they are nesting somewhere next to the Little Calumet River. The waterway marks part of Chicago's southern border. Birders say the last eagle nesting in the Chicago area was in the Indiana Dunes in 1897.
