Welcome to the 2013 Season of the Lake of the Ozarks!

This cam, showing "Elsie & Einstein," the Lake of the Ozarks Eagles, is located in Central Missouri, USA.
Elsie & Einstein came to the location in August 2009 and built their 1st nest 150' north of their current location.
In 2010 they moved their nest 80 feet from thumper59's back deck. This nest was used till the end of this season. With three active chicks, the nest fell apart stick by stick till nothing was left except for Elsie and Einsteins sign on the tree. The tree has been dead for over a year and fearing that it could not withstand another season, Thumper contructed a large platform which he raised and attached to the cam tree. After checking it out, Elsie and Einstein put their sign of approval on it and have been working on creating their new nest!

Ozark and Star

2012 Dates for Reference:
eggs laid: February 7, early morning; maybe February 10
hatched: probably March 15 (37 days) - confirmed March 16, 3:26 pm; probably March 17 (36 days) - confirmed March 18; probably around March 19 - confirmed March 24
named: Spirit, Sunshine and Chance
fledged: June 11, 5:53 am (88 days), June 12, early morning (87 days); June 5, 1:26 pm (~78 days)

2012 was the first time Elsie laid three eggs that hatched and all survived. She and Einstein did a super job keeping the chicks well fed and well cared for. So good that one chick ( Sunshine) didn't want to leave home. When we finally thought she had left, she reappeared at the nest September 13, to check out the new nest Thumper built for Elsie and Einstein.

Good Evening Ozarks! Good Evening All!

Thumper worked on the new nest and cam today. He moved the cam to the side of the platform for a better angle of the nest and surrounding area. He also added a few more perches for Elsie, Einstein and our chicks next season. Then as he was leaving the nest, he left the E's a treat of shrimp and prime rib!! Bet they will enjoy that as their snack tonight!

8:10am- The new nest is empty. They haven't been back in it since Thumper left prime rib and shrimp in it for them. Not sure if they ate it or removed it!:dunno:

Click on image to download
8:18am- Still sitting together in lower nest. It almost looks like they have been doing some nestoration in it. Not a good idea Elsie and Stein... that tree might not make another season since it's dead!!

Click on image to download
8:20am- Sun glare is on the lower nest now. The E's are still sitting there!
