<::: PLEASE READ


Egg ... citing News.


The BC nest of .. K-76/m & A-32/f .. has TWO eggs .. laid March 7th and March 10th.

The FP nest of .. A-64/m & A-49/f .. now has :^: :^: :^: on their nest.

The SC nest of .. A-40/m & A-48/f .. now has :^: :^: :^: on their nest.

The TH nest of .. K-81/m & K-82/f .. has ONE egg .. laid April 2nd.

The WE nest of .. K-01/m & K-91/f .. now has :^: and ONE egg. Unfortunately the first egg, laid February 8th, was non-viable.



The adults will be taking turns brooding the chicks and incubating the eggs. Normally during this time, or at a switch, the eggs will also be rolled. This is to prevent the developing embryos/chicks from sticking to the inside of the shells.

While IWS is interested in the above information, and would be especially interested in knowing if an adult leaves the nest and the eggs are uncovered for a while, Dr. Sharpe has indicated in the past that he also wants us to simply enjoy the experience of watching all the happenings on the nests and learn more about these magnificent birds through the wonder of the Nest Cams.

Therefore, please continue to post observations in the usual way, but should you observe a parent switch or notice that the adult is not on the nest, it would be helpful to all of us if the time(s) could also be noted/posted .. along with whatever else you observe happening on the nest at that time.

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.

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!

“A request from Dr. Sharpe”

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!

A windy night for K82. She did her ups and downs all night, with branches being blown about the nest. Now she lays to the 4, very low to the nest. She lifts up a bit to move a stick out from under her to the 3

4.31
She has a look around, rises, and turns to the 1. She ROLLS, turns to the 11, and settles

4.33
Wind is lifting her by the tail

K91 stood over the bowl to the 5 all night. Waking off and on to fluff the bowl and preen the baby. Wind is extreme, but nest looks intact. She sleeps tucked back, chick looking outward below her, but stays low

Whooooops :o . Wind catches K82 by the tail. She clings to the nest bowl, but the wind grabs hold and flips her over the 12. She is able to hang on to the outside of the 12 and crawls back in

4.38
She settles to the 8

K91 is being totally battered by the winds, yet she stands tucked back as though it's nothing

Wish they would build up the rails along the 2-3-4 a lot more

K91 cries out as she scans the nest for something to feed the chick. Chick rises. K91 stretches, wind catching her tail. She backs up to the 2 and preens.

5.54
Chick stretches, then does a PS to the 6. K91 scratches and preens the chicks head. K91 does a bit of preening
