<::: PLEASE READ


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.

. . .ALL NEST CAMS - http://www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream.html
. . .BC = Bald Canyon on San Clemente Island - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/mzGQjgFW5e3
. . . FP = Fraser Point - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_ch00eKUn4 Temporarily unavailable

. . .TH = Two Harbors - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbv8tDPFAS4
. . .WE = West End - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sU3HWE6Vg-Q


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!

"The Two Harbors cam is back online (since yesterday afternoon) and we should be switching to my antennas today. I will try to hike to the West End tomorrow to see if I can fix things out there."

6.08
He turns to the 3 and A48 flies in from the left front to the 6. She watches him, then begins to work with that same branch as A40 digs

Someone/thing is heard near the cam

6.25
Shrike comes up from below to check things out at the 5. He/she remains quiet

5.28
It turns to face front, then hops over to the 7, looking all around.

6.30
Cam zooms in on the Shrike. Has to be the most quiet Shrike I've ever seen :lol:. All the times it's been on the nest, it has never squawked

6.33
Oh, it does its double peeping call, then hops down the front
