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 West End 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.

As you know all these Videos/Stills and Captures .. 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 posting or reserving a space for your captures of the day to keep continuity to the archives.

HAPPY HATCHDAY - CHICK #1!

April 14, 2010

~ 8 AM - Looks like egg on right is cracked open and chick making its way out

Posted Image Posted Image

AS K01 walks around the bowl - the egg on the right popped up for a second and you can see the separating shell (PS - just in case you wonder - the white spot directly below K01's beak is his leg band, not a piece of shell!)

Posted Image

~ 10AM - Wray moved a shell out of the bowl and to the right edge of the nest

Posted Image

~ 3:25PM - oh yeah - chick-in-egg on the right, other egg on the left. Chick looks like still a couple pieces of shell on it

Posted Image

~3:30PM - WE chick finally pops it's head up for us!

Posted Image

~ 4PM - you can see the chick's whole body as it's lying down in the nest bowl. Butt facing dad(?) and head planted in the fluff. Just in front of it looks like the top of the other egg

Posted Image

Chick's little black eyes have Dad's beak in sight!..

Posted Image

But head still too wobbly to make it there!
