Baby bald eagles hatch at Seagoville wetland center

A North Texas bald eagle family relocated by Oncor in 2014 has given birth to a second set of baby eaglets.

The company released photos of the eagle family in their 200-pound nest at John Bunker Sands Wetland Center in Seagoville.

“Based on eagle activity, it appears that both mom and dad have been feeding some hungry mouths, but it’s unclear exactly how many eaglets have hatched,” Oncor said in a media release.

A new update from JBS Wetland Center --


John Bunker Sands Wetland Center

EAGLE UPDATE - WE HAVE TWINS!! Tom Fleming was out the other day and was able to get a picture of two eaglets in the nest. In the picture below the light colored object on the right is the reflection off of a black garbage bag. The center light patch is one eaglet and the left light patch next to the strut is an eaglet. How great is that! We will continue to monitor the eaglets and let everyone know when they are big enough to be seen in the nest through the scope at the Center.

A couple of updates from the JBS Wetlands Center and quite a few pictures. They have been nice enough to allow me to post them do please do not share them. Thank you! Left thumb up

John Bunker Sands Wetland Center

On Saturday, 16 April 2016, we held our third annual Eagle Walk hosted by volunteers Kathy and Bill Nance. We had a spotting scope and a camera connected to a laptop to allow close-up viewing of the eagles, and photos of the eagles from previous years. This year the eagles were quite cooperative, and we were able to see all four of them in or near the nest.

04/16/2016: While setting up in the morning, we were able to see the adult female and both eaglets in the nest. This picture gives you an idea of the size of the eaglets, shown here at about 6 weeks of age and not much smaller than the adult

04/16/2016: Soon after, mom left the nest and perched on top of the tower

04/16/2016: Both eaglets finally decided they would show themselves

04/16/2016: Standing erect and tall. The eaglets are big enough now that their 6+ foot diameter nest doesn’t seem to dwarf them anymore

Click on image to download


04/16/2016: Over the next few weeks, the eaglets will become more and more active, and will be very visible for those who want to come out and see them. They will be preparing for the day that they fledge, “branching” (venturing off the nest and out onto the arm of the tower), exercising their wings, and “flying” across the nest. They will probably fledge sometime in the last half of May.
