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 have followed them through the Nestorations and then onto the Eggs/Incubation stage and now we have finally reached the most exciting stage the Hatching of the Chicks and their Early Development...... so this is where we will put the Chicks and their Development stages ... because that leads us into eaglets and fledglings.

Thursday, March 26th, 2009 became a very historic day for this nest ... A Red letter day ... a day of special significance ... the very first Natural Hatchling .. EVER .. made an appearance!

As you know all these Videos and Stills 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.

We do however welcome comments, about any of the eagles, or the different stages, in the Daily Nest Watch or Chat threads. Thank You.

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

HAPPY HATCHDAY - CHICK #1

March 26, 2009

7:56 am K-81 is still very restless, rolling the eggs and aerating

Posted Image

8:00 am, movement in the nest bowl!

Posted Image Posted Image

TH 8:32 am K-81 calls out for help. "I need to go and get a ><'> !" I definitely saw a tiny grey head moving in the nest bowl (under his neck, not his beak).

Posted Image

TH K-82 arrives with a ><'> . K-81 gets up with some chattering.

Posted Image Posted Image

K-82 approaches the nest bowl to have a look. K-81 turns back to look in the bowl as well.

Posted Image

K-81 departs. K-82 approaches the bowl, nudges the chick and then the egg, then settles down over both. @ 8:57 am


Posted Image Posted Image

TH @ 4:50 pm K-81 brings in an orange fish. K-82 mantles it. He flies off and she proceeds to devour it. ><'> The fish was still flopping around a lot. K-82 looked like she was considering feeding the eaglet but she did not. Maybe it needs to be stronger and more able to hold its head up before being fed. Could definitely see the tiny chick moving around, though.

HAPPY HATCHDAY - CHICK #2

March 28, 2009

view of the second egg, looks like there are dark marks on it. @ 6:40 am

Posted Image

First view of second chick who has just hatched at 7:00 am. :^: Parent switch K-82 returns with an orange fish. ><'> K-81 gets up and flies off. By watching very closely I could see the oldest and strongest chick on the left, plus a bobbly weaker head on the right. The shell was not visible the way it had been in my picture at 6:40 am. K-82 tried to pull some of the second shell away but it was sticking still so she settled down to brood.

Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

Feeding of oldest chick, not sure about younger one since view is blocked. K-82 is eating some of the garibaldi herself and feeding it to the oldest chick. 7:47 am

Posted Image

Posted Image This is the second chick, showing on the right.

7:59 am clearer view of discarded second eggshell. K-82 is brooding the two chicks.

Posted Image

Parent switch K-81 flies off. K-82 circles the nest bowl. The oldest chick is on the right. It is tracking its parent and turning in the nest as its mother walks around. The chick which hatched this morning is on the left. It is moving, but its neck is not strong enough yet to hold its head up for long. 12 noon
