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 Pelican Harbor Nest on Santa Cruz Island.

A camera was placed at the nest the PH Pair used last season, but they did not visit there ... and in February it was discovered that they had moved to the "Berry" Nest at Chinese Harbor. Fortunately the camera at that nest was still operational and we watched the pair working at the nest.

Lots of bonding has taken place mostly out on the limb and ... on March 6th, 2012 at 2:00pm .. K-26 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.

K26 is ready to lay her egg when K10 arrives to do nestorations.
See him in the upper right-hand corner of the 1st pic.

K26 lets him know it's not a good time....

Takes awhile, but K10 gets the hint and goes to the end of the branch.

STRATEGIES of INCUBATION!

March 7, 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 donít sit on them right away; they know what theyíre doing."

(Obviously this applies to the PH & SC eagles too)


Posted Image Posted Image
K-10 incubating........................................... K-26 arrives. K-10 moves a stick.

Posted Image Posted Image
K-26 stands off the egg. K-10 on the limb. Then he flies down onto the nest.

...................................Posted Image
................................... K-10 now incubating. K-26 on the limb.

Posted Image Posted Image
K-10 rolls the egg...........................................K-26's turn to incubate.

Posted Image Posted Image
Prey delivery. K-26 claims it. K-10 moves to the limb. K-26 stands off the egg.
