Comment: Steve, thanks for the information on Lucy. Sure makes me feel better for her to know that she has those capabilities. After her ordeal, I found it very hard to look at the E4Kids site.
Date: 03/07/2014 11:08 am CDT

Comment: Saw a video recently,okmeme, Lucy brought her own prey to the nest. They[talon] do provide a roadkill deer near by to supplement.
Date: 03/07/2014 10:28 am CDT
Comment: okmeme they had a story on there link about lucy's abilities.. She can perch, feed self, and some hunting also. Great read. Been there a lot this am. if you don't find the link ask they'll get it for you. nice chatters.
Date: 03/07/2014 10:17 am CDT
Comment: Sad about Larry and Lucy. It will be exceptionally hard on them because of Lucy's limitations. She needs a nest to sit in. If I remember right, she is still unable to perch because of her feet and Larry actually feeds her.

Comment: Lkk read that also. they have videos in the blue banner at E4K's site. Got to go going to M I L's need to make a pie and food for her. Will be back, No squirrel or eagles for me here yet. LOL

Comment: I don't know how common it is June but I know there was a squirrel's nest below the Norfolk nest also.
Date: 03/07/2014 9:31 am CDT
Comment: Thanks LKK, and Okmeme, I wondered why lucky hung around so much lately, just had to build a nest below eagles, LOL Lucky stits him.
Date: 03/07/2014 9:24 am CDT
Comment: Nest did appear to lift some in the storm but not sure about structure damage.Squirrel I believe lives below the BE nest in his own squirrel nest. It is nesting time for squirrel in Okla.
Date: 03/07/2014 9:20 am CDT
Comment: Good Morning. June, I was watching too when the nest was actually picked up off the branches and dropped back down. I'm sure it needs work. Well, Lucky too off.
Date: 03/07/2014 9:16 am CDT
Comment: Now I wonder if this nest may not be safe. The squarell was under the nest pushing up the middle. I know this nest almost was blown from the tree the night of the Moore tornatio.Lucky is really going over this nest this morning. He may be dinner yet.

Comment: Looks like eagle on branch to left of nest again. There's a dark spot but not as clear as usual so probably not. Either this is a better view of the nest or it has been worked on a little. I think maybe OZ has been doing the work. TY OZ!

Comment: R-wishful thing I guess!
We ask that you limit your comments to nest camera topics. Thank you!
Although the nest at Sequoyah NWR began as a Bald Eagle nest, a pair of Bald Eagles incubating two eggs abandoned the nest in January. Subsequently, a Great Horned Owl began incubating a single remaining but no longer viable eagle egg, and later began a clutch of her own. Meanwhile, the Sooner Lake eagles have returned to the pole nest. Read our updates below, and stay tuned to see what develops!

This camera project would not have been possible without the major support of: OG&E, OneNet, Atlas Broadband, OU College of Arts and Sciences, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Biological Survey, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, ConocoPhillips. Additional support provided by individual donors.
5 March 2014: While the eagle pair at Sequoyah is nesting at an alternate nest this year, the camera nest is visited occasionally as seen in the photo below. An immature eagle visited the nest today and spent a few minutes moving sticks and nest lining around (second photo below).
26 February 2014: We visited the Sooner Lake site to determine what is wrong with the cameras, and it appears to be a faulty radio on the nest tower. This is difficult to replace because of its location, and won't be immediately repairable. We will make plans to try to replace the radio, and/or relocate a camera to an active nest site, although we do not yet know how quickly this can be done, or even if it can be accomplished this season. We hope you will check this page every week or two for developments.
17 February 2014: The eagle pair at Sooner Lake is nesting at an alternate nest rather than on the tower where the cameras are located. This is not unusual, as the pair here has initiated nests at several additional nearby locations in recent years. We do expect that they may continue to visit the camera nest for feeding and loafing, but will probably not be on camera a great deal this season. It does not look promising that the Sequoyah nest will be used by eagles this year either, but perhaps we will be treated to visits or nest attempts by other species as we were last year.
13 January 2014: Activity at both the Sooner Lake and Sequoyah nest sites has been sporadic. There are encouraging signs, but we will need to wait and see what develops at each site this season.

Our Bald Eagle nest cam project provides an intimate view of wild Oklahoma Bald Eagle nests. Children and adults from Oklahoma and around the world can observe life in an eagle nest, and scientists can make observations that will help us better understand the life history of our national symbol.
