Eýry. n.s. [from ey, an egg.] The place where birds of prey build their nests and hatch.
But I was born so high,
Our eyrie buildeth in the cedars top,
And dallies with the wind, and scorns the sun. Shak. R. III.
The eagle, and the stork,
On cliffs and cedar-tops their eyries build. Milt. Par. Lost.
Some haggard hawk, who had her eyry nigh,
Well pounc'd to fasten, and well wing'd to fly. Dryden.
