Dale Hollow 2018-2019

Post by stephaniemhood » Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:07 am

Those of us at Hancock welcome you all to year 3 of the Dale Hollow Nest thread.

Link to 2017-2018 thread: viewtopic.php?p=1283#p1283

Adults named Obey (M) and River (F) (per the announcement on the Dale Hollow Facebook page), "The Obey River is the main tributary that forms Dale Hollow Lake and runs the full length (almost 50 miles) of the reservoir from the headwaters to the confluence with the Cumberland River below Dale Hollow Dam." per JudyB from first season's thread.

VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED!!! 10-13-2017
As Dale Hollow Eagle Cam (DHEC) enters this exciting second season watching the life cycle of these magnificent American Bald Eagles, Obey & River, it is necessary to inform our viewers of the following.
This Eagle's Nest is located on Dale Hollow Lake, a 30,000 acre reservoir located on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line. Eagles are being viewed in their natural habitat and viewers may witness attacks by Great Horned Owls, other Eagles, and could see injury and/or death of one of the Eagles and/or their young Eaglets.
DHEC is permitted to be near this Eagle's Nest only one time per year, July/August, when the Eagles are away from their nest. DHEC will make camera adjustments and maintenance at this time. DHEC will not violate federal law and go near this nest during any other time of year for any reason. Human intervention in the lives of Eagles will only endanger the nest, the Eagles, their young, and could cause the Eagles to abandon this nest. Likewise, if anything happens to the cameras during the nesting season, DHEC will not go near the nest as the camera will remain off until the permitted July/August "off-season".
Therefore, please view this camera with discretion knowing that no one will go near this nest for any reason other than to watch, from a distance, with binoculars. Nature will take it's course at this nest and DHEC will not intervene if you witness a disturbing situation at this nest.
If you witness an Attack from an owl or other predator, please do not expect immediate feedback as to the condition of the Eagles. DHEC relies on viewers, boaters, and spotters to send reports to DHEC and this takes time when the reservoir is so large. Eagles have a broad range and they may not be within camera view for days or weeks at a time. The camera only shows a small area of the Eagle's daily life, the nest, and does not show you the many, many miles that Eagles travel each day.
If you must know the location and condition of these Eagles every minute of the day or night, you will be disturbed and worried by watching this nest. DHEC will not make the journey of several miles to the nest each time a viewer is disturbed that they have not seen one of the Eagles in a few hours or even days.
Watch and enjoy this camera with discretion knowing that disappointment and tragedy can and will occur along with the joy and beauty of these magnificent creatures. Pray for God's protection be upon this nest, these Eagles, and their offspring. God, who created the Eagles, and all living creatures, knows best, and is in control.
Please change the channel on your TV or change web-sites on your computer if you find watching these Eagles in their natural, wild habitat disturbing in any way.
DHEC appreciates your viewing, your comments, and your support. THANK YOU !!

3:041p - River to the nest
919 304.jpg
919 306.jpg

4:05p - She perched for a while before leaving
919 405.jpg

I'm almost certain this is River. All of her wing feathers are straight and clear like normal, unlike the Visitor Dale that was here. No notches that I could see. I don't see the white on her right leg but she could have molted them by now.

Found them! In the 2nd picture, what looks like white on the bottom on the leg is actually the nest I think...optical illusion. But both photos have the white on upper leg!

:eag: 9/20/18 - A beautiful sunset scene - I noticed how the sunlight was giving us a good look at what the nest
looks like right now. I am excited to see how River & Obey go about reconstructing their nest for this highly
anticipated new season! :)

Steph and Journi, are both cameras streaming? I can only view Cam 2. Oh wait, I just noticed Journi that you posted scaps of the nest from both cam 1 & 2. Are there links for both? Thank you.

Here you go Marianne https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub8bih5RVIA

I should add that if you're on your Ipad, you can't switch to the other cam. Tyler is supposed to be working on a stand alone link for that other cam and as soon as he does, I will post it for you!

(white spot on right leg) If this is indeed River, she was the first to arrive to the nest tree this afternoon.
(Please correct me if I'm wrong Steph :yes: )

I think you are right Journi...but I'm still confused! I know that other eagle was Obey that came in behind her. But the other day, the eagle with the white on the upper right was also Obey :puzz: River's white on right is normally lower than that..so maybe she molted and they are still growing.

Oh well, we have 2 eagles here and we will know for sure who is who when one lays an egg!!

Steph - On Sept 19 you can see the scap where I posted the eagle with the same white upper leg marking.
That is why when I saw that same white upper leg marking in my scap today, I went to the chat to ask them
who's who! So, I'm just as confused as you are now! (Deep breathing helps! ;) )

One things for sure - when we have an eagle who lays eggs - that will be River for sure! THEN, we can go back and
look at the different markings to see who's who! :thumlft:

Obey leaves and River is perched and watching
922 642.jpg
922 648.jpg

I have to admit, I haven't been fully convinced this is River. Obey I'm sure of, but something has seemed different with this eagle and I just can't quite put my finger on it yet. With that being said, this morning I do believe this might actually be her. Tail still has some dirty tint to it from what I can tell too.

Now if she would just sing us her lovely clarinet screeching LOL :%:
