<::: 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.

. . .ALL NEST CAMS - http://www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream.html

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!

I find K91 out on the peak, at the top left of the branch office. Looks like she might be gathering fluff ??

6.42
She hops down a little lower to a rock, still pulling up stuff ?? K01 watches as he works

6.43
She flies down behind the middle peak, and still appears to be gathering material.

6.44
K01 steps to the 3 and watches something down below with interest

6.45
K91 must have spotted it too. She flies down the ridge and to the right side of the nest. K01 watches down below.

6.46
Cam moves to the front of nest. K01 steps up to the 1 and looks down

6.47
Cam moves to look down the right side. It moves out farther, and farther, but we are unable to see anything.

K91 flies in from behind the small peak toward the front. K01 hops down and gets to work in the bowl and waits for her. She doesn't show

7.37
He continues to work and watch

7.38
Then she flies up from the left, heads to the right rear and circles the left peak around to the left, then comes to the nest with a small stick. She places it at the front, then digs in the bowl with K01. K01 pulls the fluff in from atop the rock. Then tracks left, rear, and overhead

7.42
Both stand watching out to the left. K01 then hops up to the rock, she bows a couple times

7.43
She shakes out her feathers, then they watch to the rear

8.03
Now he plucks the ball thingy again. K91 scans the area
