As you know All Eagles All The Time 2009/2010 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 2009, when they started to bring in sticks.

Lots of bonding has taken place on the nest and ... on February 17th, 2010 at 6:46pm .. K-82 laid their first egg.

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

The Videos/Stills and Screen Captures .. 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 reserving a space for your captures of the day to keep continuity to the archives.

Getting into position... then a little poop shot before???
Posted Image Posted Image

She seems to start into delivery, 81 stands by but moves to the patio soon
Posted Image Posted Image

82 did quite a bit of fluffing up on pushing down; Finally she relaxes a bit and jumps up slightly
Posted Image Posted Image

Do we have an egg? After much anticipation we get our first glimpse!

NEW PARENTS on the NEST!

............................ Posted Image
.................................................... K-81 loves to incubate!

Posted Image Posted Image
K-81 is incubating and seems reluctant to move when K-82 arrives to relieve him.

Posted Image Posted Image
Finally he rises ... stretches ... and takes off.

......................................Posted Image
........................................K-82 finally settles down to incubate their egg

Posted Image Posted Image
K-81 on the nest calls out .. whether to K-82 for relief .. or Ravens in the area is unclear.

Posted Image Posted Image
K-81 with a beak full of fluff!............................................. Beautiful K-82 incubating her egg.
