Thread subject: Sooner Lake OK Nest Observations
||04/02/10 03:02 am
||About 2:05 PM, right after a nest exchange, while Mom was feeding the other eaglet, it appears the smaller of the two slipped out of the nest over by the tree
Sutton is going to try to send someone out there.
ETA: Sutton posted this on their website:
1 April: Well, we wish this was an April Fool's prank, but one chick appears to have fallen from the nest. Tragedy strikes frequently in the natural world, and this is just one example. We plan to visit the site today to look for the eaglet, but it will take some time. Whether the eaglet fell in water or on land, and whether it is injured or not, and whether we can safely climb the tree to replace it in the nest without disturbing the adults too much are all factors that we will be looking for and considering
They've now updated the Sutton Center site to say that the chick did not survive.
This is a new nest they built this year, and sadly I don't think it's quite finished the way it should be. Please keep the remaining chick (or chicks - the other egg may hatch today or tomorrow) in your thoughts.
Here is a video from 03/30/10

||Intellectually we know that things are not perfect in the natural world, however, I still don't like hearing about the many mishaps of any nest. Between the environment, "people", natural challenges, and many other obstacles, it makes me appreciate any and every "success" story.
