As you know All Eagles All The Time 2011/2012 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 watched the eagles start their Nestorations in October 2011, when they started to bring in fluff and branches.

Lots of bonding has taken place on the nest and on February 18, 2012, at 8:24pm Wray 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.

STRATEGIES of INCUBATION!

February 20, 2012

Quote from Steffani ... Catalina Update: February 15, 2012 ...

"It is normal for the eagles to not incubate their first egg right away.
They tend to wait until the whole clutch has been laid to fully incubate their eggs in the hopes that they will all hatch at relatively the same time, so not to worry if, once TH and WE eagles lay their first eggs, they don’t sit on them right away; they know what they’re doing."


Posted Image Posted Image
K-01 standing off the egg.............................. Cam zoomed in on the egg.

..................................Posted Image
............................................. Now he incubates it.

Posted Image Posted Image
Wray is now the incubator, but K-01 can't stay away and returns with another stick.

Posted Image Posted Image
............................................Neither parent incubating.

..................................Posted Image
.................................................. A Switch over.

Posted Image
Wray is home before dark ... ready for the night shift!

........Good Night Wray!
