<::: PLEASE READ


The 2013/2014 Nesting Season is over.

A New Month ... A New Season!



The AEATT threads have been closed and put in order ... along with the Conclusion ... and renamed ... Class of 2014.


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!

WE WA.. I watched the video of K91 being harassed by the gull/ crow? There is something really odd with the bird that is bugging our WE eagle. I have watched gulls and crows for many many hours at war with raptors and have never seen a flight pattern as I did in this video.. it flies too fast and mechanical.. like a drone... and it stays out of sight most of the time even in the WA SHOTS.. JMHO

let us not close our minds to this possibility.. a Eagle should be able to catch a seagull, crow or most shorebirds this large that has been shown in the video.. I have seen other videos with crows and gulls.. and this is quite different.. I just feel very uneasy about what I saw in this video..

JoSea, I haven't had time to watch the video yet.

I've not watched any live eagle OFF CAM ever, but a relative in Alaska told me of his sighting of a gull bothering a Bald eagle. The eagle plucked it from the sky and both the gull's wings were torn off off it. I guess that would back up your story about annoying gulls and eagles. Maybe some eagles are far more aggressive than others. I don't know?

I'm watching the video now. It could be these are juvenile gulls?

Patti, thanks for the story about the eagle in Alaska. I believe that our K91 is plenty agressive and could take on a juvenile gull with no problem.. watch the flight pattern on the "bugging bird" / gull.. it flies more like a hummingbird in courtship flight.... I have watched men fly their model airplaines when it was real popular in the 80 off our local cliff..( now there into drones).. they could control it very well but the flight pattern when they got full speed reminded me of the "bugging bird" in the video...JMHO


In fact.. I have remember watching one of the Channel Islands eagle kill a crow in a video taken by IWS crew on one of the weekly reports..

JoSea, Patti. Just my opinion, but by the speed of the bird and the size, I am guessing Peregrine

WA - I'm guessing whatever kind of bird it was, assuming a gull, it was a young one pestering K91 in yesterday's video.

That entered my mind too, Jo. Would not surprise me at all. They are all over the place now too.

WE..Jo, yes the speed is of a Peregrine for sure.. but if that is the case.. then we may have a huge danger looming .. My photogerpher friend have seen pelicans and Ospreys attacked and wings broken/killed at Torry Pines nature reserve where there is a breeding pair with nest on the cliff.... those birds didn't know what hit them...

This happened only when they where protecting the nest and young.. this is not breeding season for the Peregrines and I have seen them out hunting.. have never seen them go after other raptors but I think we will have to wait and get some answers in one of the weekly reports/ updates from Dr. sharpe and IWS.. as to the interaction of the Peregrine and our Eagles.. since WE has a breeding pair in the WE eagle's territory.

FYI.. just read a article about a drone that looks like a Peregrine falcon, for protecting airports and farmland.. and etc...

I think, the biologist mentions in an earlier updates something about a peregrine were dive bombing an adult eagle. I have seen this bird before in the West End nest area, its flying very fast. I also remember that Maria or Stephani wrote in an update about gulls which dive bombing the eagles.

The eagles also chasing Osprey to get their fish, maybe they do the same with gulls??
