Feb 3 Around the Eagle Cams

Bartons Cove: Northeast Utilities
Is back online now for their new season. Both adults have been seen together at the nest.

Blackwater seems to be settled with 2 eggs for this season.

This added info from Lisa at Blackwater.

Woody Dawson
Finally, I wanted to mention some good news related to our friend Woody Dawson. Woody is a wonderful photographer who photographs eagles along the Susquehanna River in northern Maryland and also in Alaska, and I’ve occasionally shared his work in my blogs. Woody just notified me that six of his photos were just used in a brochure put out by the U.S. Mint for their new bald eagle commemorative coin series. Here are two images showing the brochure: Image one and Image two. The only photo that is not Woody’s is the image on the far right on the first brochure — that is a photo of Challenger, the captive bald eagle from the American Eagle Foundation. Right now, these are the only copies we have of the brochure, but we wanted to share them, and we wanted to congratulate Woody on this wonderful honor. If you’d like to see more of Woody’s work, be sure to visit his website.

The California nests will number at 5 this Eagle Season. Major work on the cams is curently being done the weekend of Feb 2and 3. Look ofr much more info on these nests in the next Feedblitz.

Kent Both Star and Spirit have been seen at their nest together, the most recent sighting I am aware of is Jan 29. This nest also had the human kind of visitor doing soem maintainance on Feb 2.

NCTC cam has been down since very early Fri morning as an ice and snowstrom hit the area. One of the adults believed to be Belle showed up around 10:30 pm on Thurs and was still in the nest when the cam froze close to 6 am on Fri morning. Sadly for NCTC fans it has remained down and we will not know any more about Belle and or eggs until it is up again hopefully some time on Monday.

Norfolk seems to have laid their First egg admidst a visit by a Great Horned Owl. There is mixed thoughts and commentary on how much of a threat or harassment this will be as the eagle season progresses. Go to their website to see photos and more info on those happenings.

Oklahoma has this info on their website
