As you know All Eagles All The Time 2008/2009 is an Archival/History in Videos and Still captures showing the various stages throughout the year in the lives of the Eagles on the Two Harbors Nest on Catalina Island.

We watched the eagles start their Nestorations in September 2008, when they started to bring in sticks.

Lots of bonding has taken place on the nest and ... on February 17th, 2009, K-82 laid their first egg.

So here we are ... onto the next important stage ... Eggs and Incubation.

The Videos and Stills posted here on this thread .. have been selected .. as their favourites ... by the members who have captured them on Nest Watch.
You can see more videos, and still pictures, by visiting the Daily Observations thread. Also known as Nest Watch

Again we ask you not to post comments in this thread. VIEWING ONLY PLEASE! This will enable faster viewing by Dr. Peter Sharpe and the IWS Team ... for record purposes .... and also for members and visitors to the forum.

Capturers are asked to wait until Cumbrian or EDblue (Eagle Duo) posts the first thread of each day before oosting or reserving a space for your videos and/or captures of the day to keep continuity to the archives.

Congratulations, K82 and K81! Egg laid around 4:13 pm or so. <3 :<<>>: :<<>>: <3
K82 all puffed up; after she lays the egg she rests over it for about 35 minutes.
Her eyes close and she looks tired. I believe she is waiting for the shell to harden.

Posted Image Posted Image

Our first glimpse, as Mom takes a look at her precious egg.

Posted Image Posted Image

Time to settle over the egg to incubate it.
