Nest Watch – Thursday, December 7, 2017

<::: 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.

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!

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 - Thanks for the timeline, Pat.
I've gone back & recorded the visits and will get captures from them.

Here's the first set...of their first visit before the cam went to color.

A branch got in K-91's way as she was digging in the fluff.

Okay...that branch has gotta move!

Here comes K-01.

A little beaking discussion.

K-01 flies off just as the cam goes to color.

WE .. 2:13pm .. see shadow over the nest then K-01 <poofs> onto it.

K-91 also arrives front left .. her tail and left wing catching the stick that is sticking upright at the front. It bounces back up as she moves forward.

She digs in the fluff and beaks at K-01 as he turns around. K-91 keeps glancing up at the branch. Both stand looking around.

2:18pm .. K-01 flew off to the right.

2:23pm .. K-91 takes off to the right.
