East TN State Univ Bald Eagle Cams 2018 + 2019 + 2020

Post by JudyB » Sun Feb 25, 2018 3:34 pm

Admin Note - I'm continuing this thread into 2019 (and now 2020) as there aren't many posts. ~JudyB

Posts for the 2019-2020 nesting season start here - viewtopic.php?f=44&t=127&p=242442#p242442

East Tennessee State University has eagle cams at two locations - Johnson City (JC) and Bluff City (BC) - and I'm going to try combining both locations in a single thread, so please note which nest when you post observations.

Both cams were set up in November 2015 by the Department of Biological Sciences.

The cams are both in the Northeast corner of the state of Tennessee, so both are in the eastern time zone. Here's a bit of my bigger map showing that Bluff City (the dark red pin) is a bit further north than Johnson City (the locations are approximate - they're in the right town on the right body of water, but both are on private property, so no detailed directions):

And this shows where they are in relation to some of the other nests:

According to the ETSU Eagle Cams Facebook group, The ETSU Johnson City nest is located on private property on Boone Lake in Johnson City, TN. 2016 (their first year on cam) was the 4th year this pair of bald eagles has nested at this site. In the past, they have successfully fledged 2 eaglets each year. The female has distinctive dark tail feather markers that help with identification.

The pair laid two eggs in 2016, one hatched, and JC7 fledged successfully. They again laid two eggs in 2017, both hatched, and JC8 and JC9 fledged successfully.

Adults named Noshi (M) and Shima (F) (father and mother in Algonquin).

2017-2018 Season - Johnson City:
  • eggs laid: February 1, February 4, February 7
  • hatched: March 12, around 3:15 pm (39 days); March 13, around 8:47 am (37 days); March 16, around 9:55 am (37 days)
  • named: JC10, JC11, JC12
  • fledged: all three fledged successfully
  • last seen:
2018-2019 Season - Johnson City:
  • eggs laid: February 5, 4:02 pm; February 8, 3:42 pm; February 11, 6:03 pm

Bluff City

Link for BC cam and both JC cams - http://www.etsu.edu/cas/biology/eagle-cam/cameras.php

ETSU-BC cam with chat - https://livestream.com/accounts/22320199/events/6623203

Adults are named Eugene (M) and Frances (F) "after the wonderful property owners."

According to the ETSU Eagle Cams Facebook group, "The ETSU Bluff City Nest is located on private property along South Holston River. 2016 was the 5th year this pair of Bald Eagles has nested here." They laid two eggs in 2016, one hatched and BC9 fledged successfully. They again laid two eggs in 2017, both hatched, and BC10 and BC11 fledged successfully.

East Tennessee State University reported the following in November 2017: "Raccoons were in the Bluff City nest and by the time the department was able to put up baffle to deter the raccoons it was too late. The eagles started another nest and abandoned the original site. The new homeowners have been contacted and cameras will be added in the summer 2018. The department is hopeful a red-tailed hawk or great horned owl will take over the nest."

I don't know if there are any local observers - hopefully we'll learn if they have eggs and chicks, but I haven't found any information so far (as of late February 2018 - but I haven't had time to do a lot of research online)

2017-2018 Season - Bluff City:
  • eggs laid:
  • hatched:
  • named: I haven't tried scrolling back on Facebook, but guess they are BC12 and BC13
  • fledged: per the Facebook group, two eaglets fledged successfully
  • last seen:
2018-2019 Season - Bluff City:
  • eggs laid: February 1, 10:16 pm; February 5, 6:45 am
  • hatched: March 11, 10:32 am (38 days); March 12, 11:00 pm (35 days)
  • named: B14, B15
  • fledged: May 31, 1:49 pm (81 days); June 8, 11:12 am (88 days)
  • last seen: June 28; July 25
2019-2020 Season - Bluff City:
  • eggs laid:
  • hatched:
  • named:
  • fledged:
  • last seen:
