<::: PLEASE READ


Egg ... citing News.

The BC nest of ... K-76/m & A-32/f ... have ONE egg ... laid March 5th.

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.
First Egg - Second Clutch was laid on March 3rd. Unfortunately this egg broke early March 4th. Cause unknown.


The adults will be taking turns incubating it and normally during this time, or at a switch, the egg will also be rolled. This is to prevent the developing embryo/chick from sticking to the inside of the shell.

While IWS is interested in the above information, and would be especially interested in knowing if an adult leaves the nest and the egg is uncovered for a while, Dr. Sharpe has indicated in the past that he also wants us to simply enjoy the experience of watching all the happenings on the nests and learn more about these magnificent birds through the wonder of the Nest Cams.

Therefore, please continue to post observations in the usual way, but should you observe a parent switch or notice that the adult is not on the nest, it would be helpful to all of us if the time(s) could also be noted/posted .. along with whatever else you observe happening on the nest at that time.

Times of events/changes on a nest are a great help to those of us who video when we are editing the footage.

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!

“A request from Dr. Sharpe”

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!

BC - 6:59am (computer time - can't see camera time) - K-76 flies off to the left.

Part-32 goes to the egg, rolls it, and settles down facing 5.

SWITCH?

Even though K-76 was incubating & rolling the egg when the cam came on, not sure if A-32 ever left the nest.

SC - 7:02am - A-48 finishes up her breakfast, turns and gets the feathered piece she brought to the nest yesterday and puts it in the nestbowl.

A-40 goes to it & finds a tidbit to eat.

7:04am - A48 hops to the 9 and begins pulling on the white wing featers there, tearing it apart.

This girl has a feather or wing fetish! :lol:

SC - 7:10am - :wub: A-40 & A-48 unite their bond.

Seemed kinda strange, like a half-hearted attempt.

He lingers after being done and she knocks him off.

He flies off to the left.

SC - 7:19am - A-40 returns from the left with a branch & some greenery.

7:23am - A-40 flies off to the front.



BC - Only one eagle is on the nest with the egg. A-32?

Egg uncovered.

7:33am - Eagle shakes out feathers, revealing her wingbling. It is A-32.

She goes to the egg and settles down at the 6-7. No roll.

7:34am - Up again and preening. Looking at something overhead.

I'm sorry, but sitting up to see the time stamps, report & record is too hard on my legs.

I hope someone else can do the commentary.



BC - As I type the above, A-32 goes to the egg and settles down at the 3.


SC - A-40 returns with more nesting materials.
