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 West End Nest on Catalina Island.

We have followed them through the Nestorations and then onto the Eggs/Incubation stage. Next was the exciting stage with the Historic Natural Hatchings on April 7th and April 9th of their two chicks and following their Early Development in Here a Chick! There a Chick! Now we have reached Banding Day ... where the eaglets will get their 'wing blings' ... and start on the journey to become fledglings.

In this topic we will also cover Branching ... and the final stage of Fledging.
This will be both a joyous and sad time for us all .... we will be sorry to see them leave the nest .... but we will wish them God Speed and Safe Journeys when that time finally happens.

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.

GETTING USED TO THE BLINGS

June 6, 2009


We are not sure yet what numbers the two eaglets were assigned. A guess would be K-98 and K-97
Posted Image Posted Image
K-01 feeding K-98?............................................................................................. Now K-97?

................................................ Posted Image

..........................Posted Image Posted Image
.......................... Not sure what this was that Wray was trying to feed one of the eaglets! Sure was stretchy. :wacko:

......................... Posted Image Posted Image
..................................................................... Just to prove they are not always resting!
