Comment: Maybe earth "tremble" If anyone is interested, increased earthquakes in Oklahoma are linked to all the oil well drilling, and injection of waste water they use to drill

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.
8 October 2014: We are waiting for an indication regarding where the eagles will nest later this year to determine if the existing camera equipment should be replaced. It is both time consuming and expensive to replace the equipment, so we don't want to do so if a nest site is not used. Here's hoping for cooperative eagles!
18 August 2014: Depending on where the eagles choose to nest later this fall, we hope to get the cameras working again.
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.
