<::: PLEASE READ


The Nest Observations/Nest Watch thread remains open...as long as there are cameras...which are operational...to watch.

Normally the VCOE and the IWS work on the cam equipment during the fall/winter...so the cams may go off from time to time...but we are normally advised by them if they are working in the area.

Times of events/changes on a nest are a great help to those of us who video when we are editing the footage.


Just a few Gentle Reminders about posting on this thread. (Helps to save time when reading through it.)

Please remember that it is the CHANNEL ISLANDS NESTS ONLY, either on or off camera, that we post our observations/comments about.

There are FIVE IWS nests with cameras online, so it is important to know WHICH NEST you are observing.

Please put the Initials at the start of your post.


. . .ALL NEST CAMS - http://www.iws.org/livecams.html

. . .WE = West End - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J2lBaHj0nI
. . .WEO = West End Overlook - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3T_babuBGI


These nests are all in California...so it's Pacific Time on this coast.

We prefer that the Quote Button is not used on this thread...and if you must use it...because you are referring to something on a previous page...then take TEXT only...never captures or video.

Thanks!

We are recording the activity at the Two Harbors and West End nests so that we can identify all the prey brought to the nests to calibrate the results of the nest excavations at the end of the season. I'd appreciate if you could continue to report the times that prey are brought to the nest so that later we can go through the recordings more quickly to identify the items. Thanks.

Maybe prey delivery posts could be started with >>: even if it is a bird or unidentified, so that we can spot them more easily.

To make it easier for the biologists to see the prey deliveries, please limit the use of the blue fish to prey deliveries only.

Begin your post with the nest initials, followed by the time of delivery & the blue fish.

We are recording prey deliveries at all the online nests, so please continue to use the blue fish for deliveries at any nest.


Thank you!

Dr. Sharpe's post on IWS Chat 1/27/18 regarding the BC Nest:

"The antenna to San Clemente is down. I'll be able to get up there the week after next. The audio is actually just the West End Overlook audio overlaid on the Bald Canyon video."

A64 stretches and turns to face left. He does a PS and watches right. A49 stands in her spot, watching right, and tracking the ground below her

3.42
A64 faces rear again and alerts to the left, A49 alerts too.

3.43
A49 stretches, A64 calls and trumpets, A49 calls and trumpets. Both call several times. A64 looks front, A49 looks down and tracks again to the right

3.44
A64 looks to the upper left, A49 looks to the ground again

A64 makes another attempt. He hops to the branch at left, hangs on, then over to the nest? A49 tracks left and front, then rear.

6.20
She looks to the left again. Then scans the area.

6.22
A49 moves up to the upper branch and leans to the left. She goes for it. Calls and trumpets are heard

Cam zooms out and finds the pair working on the nest. A64 lays in the bowl, pulling in fluff

6.30
A49 steps to the branches at 8 and chews

6.31
A49 steps up to the 7 and looks out to the front. Then hops up to her branch at 8. Would think she had had enough of branching for the day :D
