As you know All Eagles All The Time 2010/2011 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 I[sland.

We watched the eagles start their Nestorations in September 2010, when they started to bring in fluff and branches.

Lots of bonding has taken place on the nest and ... on February 17th, 2010 at 8:31pm .. 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.
