I was westbound on I-40 Last Friday as a lone mature Bald Eagle flew over the highway where it crosses the Canadian River near Hinton.

My current nest count, active for last year (2017) is (22) The arrival of nesting Bald Eagles in my area starts with a pair- near the Ft.Gibson Dam- East of Muskogee. For some unknown reason this pair is the first to arrive, over the last 3 years showing up the first of Nov. I will start looking for them soon. In regards to your friends visit, unless we have very cold weather to push them into the region- the majority of nesting birds set up in late- Nov.-to-Mid Dec. I will post first sightings when they arrive.
