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 Pelican Harbor Nest on Santa Cruz Island.

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

Lots of bonding has taken place between these beautiful eagles ... both on the nest .. and by sound only ... off the nest ... and ... on February 25th, 2009, K-26 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.

PH K-26 likely in labour but we don't know for sure yet - can't see well because of the glare.

Her wings are out a bit. 1:42 pm

Now she is all puffed up 2:22 pm

Posted Image Posted Image

She circles around and around the nest and pokes around carefully in the nest bowl 2:24 pm


Posted Image Posted Image

K-26's behaviour after egg-laying. 2:26 pm

It's so difficult with the glare, the egg doesn't show up in this screen cap, but I took it when I saw the egg. 3:49 pm

Posted Image

Well, I hope you can see the egg in the first picture ... it really is there, to the left of her beak! :) 4:37 pm

Posted Image Posted Image

Good night, sweet family. K-10 arrives as K-26 peeps softly. <3 6:07 pm

NEW PARENTS on the NEST!

February 26, 2009

PH K-26 starts calling out and K-10 arrives with what looked like possibly a gull. K-10 was puffing with the exertion - his beak was open. He flew off and K-26 proceeded to eat the prey. Suddenly she started calling out and K-10 came to the rescue. Something had them on high alert. Once K-10 was back, things settled down and K-26 continued with her meal. 6:01 to 6:04 pm
