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 have followed them through the Nestorations and then onto the Eggs/Incubation stage. Next was the exciting stage of the Hatchings 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 ... although there are no actual tree branches on this nest to branch to, there are rocks around the edge of the nest that the eaglets may use instead .... 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 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 that you not 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.

K-06 and K-04 .. on the rock.

Posted Image Posted Image
K-81 delivers a fish & K-06 has it as K-04 is still part way across the nest .. so K-04 tugs K-06's leg.

Posted Image
Fish flapped ... K-04 leaves it!

Posted Image Posted Image
........................................Eaglets test their wings and get some air today.

K-82 arrives and Dad takes off ... with the fish! Mom can't believe it! So she flies off.
