<::: PLEASE READ


The Nest Observations/Nest Watch thread remains open .. as long as there are cameras .. which are operational .. to watch.

Normally the VCOE and the IWS work on the cam equipment during the fall/winter .. so the cams may go off from time to time .. but we are normally advised by them if they are working in the area.

IWS weekly updates will probably be posted .. as in the past .. during this off season.


Just a few Gentle Reminders about posting on this thread. (Helps to save time when reading through it.)

Please remember that it is the CHANNEL ISLANDS NESTS ONLY ... either on or off camera ... that we post our observations/comments about.

There are FOUR IWS nests with cameras online ... so it is important to know WHICH NEST you are observing.

Please put the Initials at the start of your post.

These nests are all in California ... so it's Pacific Time on this coast.

We prefer that the Quote Button is not used on this thread ... and if you must use it ... because you are referring to something on a previous page ... then take TEXT only ... never captures or video.

Thanks!

We are recording the activity at the Two Harbors and West End nests so that we can identify all the prey brought to the nests to calibrate the results of the nest excavations at the end of the season. I'd appreciate if you could continue to report the times that prey are brought to the nest so that later we can go through the recordings more quickly to identify the items. Thanks.

Maybe prey delivery posts could be started with  >>: even if it is a bird or unidentified,  so that we can spot them more easily.

To make it easier for the biologists to see the prey deliveries, please limit the use of the blue fish to prey deliveries only.

Begin your post with the nest initials, followed by the time of delivery & the blue fish.

We are recording prey deliveries at all the online nests, so please continue to use the blue fish for deliveries at any nest.


Thank you!

Bringing Forward:

After hours of working on the feeds yesterday, it seems, at least for my computers, that the embedded media players don't seem to work with Firefox running on Windows XP. Therefore I've added a second all cams page with only Ustream feeds. It is at http://www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream.html. There is also a link above the West End cam on the page with the media player streams.

Pat, thanks for posting all the nest history/wingblings for Catalina. I was able to track down K -87's historical information. I still don't understand what she has been doing on WE nest if she was raised on another by K -81 and K -82.

TH & WE nests are empty. It's still dark out.

WE/WA remains Off Air.

Hi Marsha, No doubt it's just random she's on that nest because she and her mate-of-sorts appeared to be looking for a first time nest and it appears available to K87. We speculate that K01 may have challenged K88 and chased him off. K87 seems to have set her sights on the nest and it's easy to assume that K01 feels it's his duty to guard HIS nest. When it comes to the opposite gender, it seems to take on different tones than were the male, K88, on the nest with him. :P Eagles may return from where they came from, but in this case, K87 showed up at grandmother's house. Probably random? Just my thoughts. I don't know.

WE K-87- update in regards to the 'black line' around her neck .

I had emailed Dr. Sharpe the video I took and a few stills from 10-27-13. I received this from Dr Sharpe yesterday in an email. Good news! :D

Here is his response:
'Most likely it is just the molt pattern. Pimu had that for several months.'


Here is the pic I sent him from 10-27-13

WE -

I know that several years ago a male tried to take over the Maine nest, and even though the adults there had been a pair for quite a while, the female stood aside and let the males fight it out. Perhaps humanizing, we felt she looked more comfortable when her established mate was on the nest than when the newcomer was there, but both mated with her. In the end the established male prevailed - though, like Wray, he had an injured foot or lower leg at the time. That may have been the first time that I realized that "mating for life" wasn't necessarily true, and the biologists there said it was likely that the eagles were more bonded to the nest than to each other. At this point, Dr. Sharpe's experience with eagles is almost certainly greater than that of the experts at BioDiversity Research Institute - but it does make me observe what was happening from a slightly different perspective than I would have back when I first started watching eagle cams.
