Sequoyah NWR, OK..Bald Eagle Nest .. 2018 -2019

Post by IrishEyes » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:04 pm

Welcome to the 2018 .. 2019 season of the Sequoyah Eagles.

This a new cam is HD with IR for seeing the nest at night .. No sound !

Link to Cam

Another link to the cam with almost full screen. ..http://164.58.250.84:1935/live/eagle6.s ... ylist.m3u8


I am posting this with thanks to Judy B......this is all her documentation.

The nest is in the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, near Vian in eastern Oklahoma, near the Arkansas border. This is the Sutton Center's second nest with a cam (their first features a pair that nests about 125 miles away, at Sooner Lake in north central Oklahoma). Their primary cam page shows two views of Sooner Lake and two of Sequoyah.

The pair laid three eggs in 2011, the first year with a cam, though one disappeared before the cam came online. The two remaining eggs hatched, and both chicks fledged successfully; the younger was given a GPS transmitter, and you can follow his travels here. The pair again laid three eggs in 2012, and all three hatched, but the youngest chick was significantly smaller and fell behind in development, probably because food was a bit scarce; he was holding his own, and usually getting some food - but sadly died, probably of exposure, when he was about 5 weeks old - there was a heavy rainstorm, and his older siblings had feathers to help protect themselves from the cold rain, and he still had mostly down. The pair has laid two eggs to start the 2013 nesting season, so we are hoping both hatch and thrive.

Well, 2013 was an unusual, and ultimately non-productive nesting season here. There appeared to be an intruder or intruders who disrupted the nesting starting about 3 weeks into the incubation period; adults were off the eggs 30-60 minutes initially, and eventually only incubated for a couple of hours per day; they eventually resumed incubation, but the eggs had been uncovered in freezing weather for hours at a time, and often uncovered overnight, so sadly there wais no realistic chance the eggs will hatch. One egg collapsed January 30 (52 or 49 days after laying) and the adults were last seen on the nest February 2 (and incubated the remaining egg for a while that day). Then a great horned owl started visiting on February 3and appeared to incubate the eagle egg during the night Feb 4 & 5, spent the day on the nest Feb 6 - and laid an egg Feb 7! She laid a second egg two days later, and incubated them and the remaining eagle egg. The eagle egg and one owl egg disappeared overnight Feb 15-16; the second owl egg and the owl were gone when cam came online the morning of Feb 26; as of Feb 28, the owl had not been seen, though there would be no reason for her to return to the nest if she lost the egg. The eagles have not been seen since Feb 2; both owls visited the nest the morning of March 3rd, and one was on the nest as it got dark that evening, though there's no IR, so she(?) may have left as darkness fell. A pair of osprey also visted the nest later in the spring - busy nest!

No one used the nest in 2014 - though a local observer believes the pair had a successful season, though it wasn't clear which alternate nest was theirs, so we don't know how many chicks they raised.
2015 was a sad year - we think there may have been a new pair (chatters felt the female did not look like the one from previous years, and the male seemed very tentative the first few times he tried to incubate their two eggs); I focused on other nests once the eggs were laid and things looked OK, but when I checked back after a couple of weeks, it appeared that only the female was incubating the eggs; the male was in the area, and would come to the nest some of the time when the female left, but we didn't see him bring food or tend to the eggs, which were left uncovered (often for long periods of time, given the chilly weather) while the female was off getting food.. Against all odds, the first egg began hatching but couldn't complete the hatch process and was removed from cam view by the male; it looked as if there was a pip in the second egg, and I'm hoping the hatch process had stopped before the female abandoned the nest. I know new/young pairs often don't get all the necessary skills in the right sequence initially, so am hoping for a better year in 2016.
Rest in peace, little almost-chicks
The nest cams failed in 2016, but they reported at least two chicks; I haven't been able to find out if they fledged. There were two eggs in 2017, one hatched, and that chick fledged successfully.

I will Add 2018
The eagles laid 3 eggs .. two hatched and both chicks were thriving and doing great and when the chicks were almost 4 week old ... we lost the cam and sadly it didn't come for the rest of the season ! I wrote Suttion when the chicks would have been 9 weeks old and this was report

I heard from Dan at Sutton ..

Hi Bev, sorry, we have not been in touch with them for a while. We have not had many severe storms yet this spring, so I would expect that they are doing well. It is possible that the Sequoyah Refuge Facebook page would have some kind of update.

Good Morning Sequoyah Eagle and everyone and welcome to our new nest thread! :grhug: Looking forward to a successful season on this nest :)



From Trudikk Sept.22
' Sequoyah eagles Oklahoma 9 22 10 645pm Okee (male) was at the nest checking it out this evening just before dark.
1st eagle I've seen at the nest this season stayed over 15 mins before flying off
I do believe it was Okee due to he was using the tree perch like he had used in the past

The cam was blurring up so I edited this video best that I could.. I was still very excited to see that a eagle had flew into the nest :yes:

** There is no sound on this cam ..Sound came from another cam running in the background Sorry about that **
