Sad News

The SC nest of...A-40/m & A-48/f...had ONE egg...laid January 31st.
Lost February 1st.
A second egg was laid on February 3rd. Unfortunately this egg broke a couple of hours later. Cause unknown.
A third egg was laid on February 6th. Unfortunately this egg broke a half hour later. Cause unknown.
A fourth egg was laid on February 9th. Unfortunately this egg also broke soon afterwards. Cause unknown.
A fifth egg was laid on February 12th. Unfortunately this egg also broke soon afterwards. Cause unknown.

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 FIVE 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!

A40 floats down from the right, steps to the bowl facing 3, looks around, then begins to dig and fluff to the 1.

6.06
He gets his tail whipped by the wind and does a head stand for a second or two, then faces the 12 and looks to the rear.

6.07
He turns to the 5, then to the 6, then to the 9-10. He digs and fluffs as he watches for A48

6.09
Then he turns to the 8 and floats to the left front

A48 backs up to the 3 and looks to the rear.

She works her way to the 1 and scans left and rear. A40 tests out the bowl to the 4, then turns to face 10. I see the carcasses have started arriving. A40 moves on to the side of the bowl.
