Bald Eagles Grace the Oklahoma Skies

Oklahoma Eagle Population Growth
Eagles Returning To Oklahoma

This graph indicates what an outstanding success the Sutton Center's Bald Eagle reintroduction program has been in Oklahoma. The recovery goal for Oklahoma was 10 eagle nests, a number that has actually been quintupled in just over a decade! -- The Sutton Center for Bald Eagle Restoration



The Sutton Avian Research Center is dedicated to finding cooperative conservation solutions for birds and the natural world through science and education. The Center carries out many projects for research, conservation and education about birds. Here's one way that you can help:

Thank you for the event notification and for sharing the web-site. I'll have to show it to Thing One as he has quite the affinity for birds.

This is my first visit to your blog. I noticed you are from Okmulgee. I went to (I think it was) Duncan High Jr High in the 7th and 8th grades. Is the swimming hole still open in Okmulgee? Just wondering.

Thanks for commenting Kelly. I've enjoyed your pictures on Flickr.

I'm not sure what swimming hole in Okmulgee you are asking about. As a child growing up in the area I used to go to 'Greenwood Lake'. It was actually a pond with a waterslide, snack bar and some paddle boats, but we had fun there.

It has been closed for the last several years. These days most folks go to Okmulgee Lake to swim.
