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 Pelican Harbor Nest. on Santa Cruz 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 ... 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.

GETTING USED TO THE BLINGS!

May 28, 2010

....................A69 finally seems to be coming out of her post-banding funk.
.................She decides to give her wings a try to see if they are still working.
................................................Posted Image

K10 delivers a fish and waits. Finally A69 decides to get up and go and get it.
Posted Image Posted Image

The K26 comes home and showers the eaglets with TLC. She did this twice today.
She fed them and just stayed with on the nest for about an hour.
Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image

A68 sends a 'bring more >>: ' signal off his new backpack ..... More fish is delivered but A69 is the lucky fish gulper.
