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. 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.

Parents and eaglets were not amused by the visitors - 11:19am
Posted Image

11:24-27am - Eaglets are snagged and bagged for their banding expedition
Posted Image
12:08-09pm - Dr. Sharpe returns K-07; then later (12:41-2pm) he brings K-08 to the nest
Posted Image

2:49pm - K-01 dropped in for a brief nest check--on and off
Posted Image
The eaglets were prone to hobbling and falling--
4:30-33pm - K-08 tried to make it to Wray, and dragged K-07 along for the ride.
But they didn't last long upright--back to center and down again at 4:37pm.

Wray spent a lot of time on the rock being ignored by the eaglets. She kept leaving to bring more food, but couldn't find any takers early on. In late afternoon, the eaglets both loosened up and eventually partook of a few meals.

Up on the rock again - 1:39pm
Posted Image
One of Wray's many exits - 2:27pm
Posted Image
2:32-33pm - Wray bring a smaller fish to offset the big one
Posted Image Posted Image
Posted Image Posted Image

3:44-45pm - K-07 comes alive with wingercise
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Wray exits one more time - 4:18pm

K01 and Wray both arrive to check on their boys and see how they're doing.
Posted Image Posted Image

Wray leaves and heads back down to her lookout pinnacle.
Posted Image Posted Image

One by one, K07 and K08 finally get up on their feet and do some flapping.
Posted Image Posted Image

Wray finally delivers a >)): that would make any eaglet feel better.
