Dale Hollow 2019-2020

Post by stephaniemhood » Sat Sep 21, 2019 6:10 pm

Those of us at Hancock welcome you all to year 4 of the Dale Hollow Nest thread.

Link to last season: viewtopic.php?p=103255#p103255

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.

This is a 3 eaglet nest. For the 3 years that we have documented, Obey and River have laid 3 eggs twice. In 2014, there is also documentation that they raised 3 eaglets.

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 !!
