Harrison Bay, TN -- 2018

Post by MaryF » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:30 pm

Welcome to season seven of our coverage of the Harrison Bay Eagle Cam.

HWF would like to thank all those who are involved with bringing us this unique look into a live Bald Eagle nest.


LINK TO THE CAM -- http://harrisonbayeaglecam.org/

Facebook Page -- https://www.facebook.com/HarrisonBayEagleCam?ref=stream



The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project is designed to allow viewers an up close view of the nesting habits and process of a pair of American Bald Eagles. The nest is located on the grounds of The Bear Trace at Harrison Bay State Park golf course (Bear Trace Golf Course), near the 10th green, on the shores of Chickamauga Lake at Harrison Bay State Park near Chattanooga, Tennessee. At the beginning of this nest cam adventure, Bear Trace Golf Superintendent Paul Carter worked diligently to secure funds and coordinate the difficult task of placing a live streaming webcam 75 feet high at the edge of the eagles' nest in a pine tree.

The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam Project was initially funded by Friends of Harrison Bay State Park, the United States Golf Association Green Section, and the East Tennessee and the Middle Tennessee Golf Course Superintendents Associations.Though the eagles seem relatively unperturbed by the Bear Trace golfers who play through, visitors are not routinely allowed on the course. To protect the eagles and avoid golf course injuries for two-legged visitors no one is allowed to come out and look at the eagles except on a guided tour.

Sound is now available on this cam! The project is funded by the United States Golf Association and is sponsored by the Friends of Harrison Bay State Park and the Tennessee State Parks system and the East Tennessee and the Middle Tennessee Golf Course Superintendents Associations.

This nest is located in the Eastern Time Zone.

HARB   Eloise    1-29-15.jpg
We thank the beautiful Eloise for her many beautiful eaglets and her years as a great Mom and mate to Elliott :brknhrt:



This nest has, since the cams went live, featured the pair of bald eagles Elliott and Eloise. Unfortunately beautiful Eloise has left this earth! :cry1: It's not certain exactly what happened--only that her body was found. Since then there has been a constant parade of new female eagles vying to make Elliott their mate. So far none have succeeded. A lot of drama has been going on! I'm not sure if we will have any egg and eaglet action this season. It's not looking good at the moment!

Here is a wonderful line-up of the females who have been candidates so far courtesy of one of their chat mods, Nancy. :ty:

A little nest history ~~

First Nesting Season: 2011—Two eaglets hatched and fledged

Second Nesting Season: 2012—Cameras installed. Two eggs laid, the first on Feb. 11 and the second on Feb. 14. Sadly one was discarded shortly before it was due to hatch, and the other apparently hatched but the chick died shortly after hatching.

Third nesting season 2013----Two eggs were laid and two healthy eaglets fledged.

2014 --- Two eggs laid and eventually two eaglets fledged. On May 27th HB5 may have attempted a fledge or may have fallen or slipped--was picked up the next day from the ground with a broken wing. It is possible that HB6 may have fledged on May 31st per the park ranger. (76 days old). HB5 was re-habbed by the AEF at Dollywood and was released by Al Cecere of the AEF back into the nest area where it reunited with it's family on June 30th.

2015 --- Two healthy eaglets fledged from the nest. HB8 on June 13th and HB7 on June 18th.

The nest is located a pine tree that is only slightly taller than the location of their first nest where the original cameras were located. It is sitting about 100 up in a 120 foot tall pine tree. With funding from the United States Golf Association and support from The Friends of Harrison Bay State Park, they were able to continue the Eagle Cam Project with the nest change and in 2012 installed a set of three cameras in the current nest.

The following pictures are property of and courtesy of the Harrison Bay Eagle Cam. ~~~

This shows the area where the nest is located right in the middle of a beautiful golf course. It is near the top of the tall tree in the middle of the picture.

Apparently there is no pair of eagles at this nest right now. Since the death of the beautiful Eloise , Elliott has been interviewing new mates and has not decided on one yet! SOOO---no activity on this nest for this season . :%:
