Nest Watch – Sunday, January 7, 2018; Exciting News from IWS

<::: 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/livecams.html
. . .BC = Bald Canyon on San Clemente Island - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkyV1GCatZo
. . . FP = Fraser Point - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsWrAOOVZL8
. . .SC = Sauces Canyon (WMP) - http://media1.vcoe.org/eaglecam2 Temporarily unavailable
. . .SC = Sauces Canyon - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2EbuOwNASY Temporarily unavailable - VCOE & NPS doing some major changes.
. . .SC = Sauces Canyon (Explore) - http://explore.org/live-cams/player/sauces-bald-eagle Temporarily unavailable - See Above.
. . .TH = Two Harbors (Explore) - http://explore.org/live-cams/player/bald-eagle-two-harbors
. . .TH2 = Two Harbors (new nest) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbAeFvms6js
. . .THO = Two Harbors Overlook (Explore) - http://explore.org/live-cams/player/two-harbors-overlook-catalina
. . .WE = West End - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J2lBaHj0nI
. . .WEO = West End Overlook - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3T_babuBGI


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!

Bringing Forward:

Posted 1/6/18 on the IWS Facebook page:

"Our webpage with the live nest cams is changing to http://www.iws.org/livecams.html to simplify and make it easier to share. We have expanded from cameras on just bald eagle nests to include a peregrine falcon nest on Anacapa Island (hopefully will be used in 2018) and will soon include a new camera from a red-tailed hawk nest at the Presidio in San Francisco. It sounds like progress was made today with an internet connection to Santa Cruz Island, so we hope to have the Fraser Point and Sauces eagle nests back online in the near future. The former webpage (www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream) will remain active until we have it automatically rerouted to the new page for all of you that have it bookmarked."

TH 10.36
Hawk sits looking over the water at the lower left of the waterfront

10.48
Hawk is gone

11.00
Ooops, wrong rock, hawk is still there

Know what I find strange. I can hear RTHs calling all the time at BB, but never hear them at all at TH/WE. With all the sightings at WE, you would think to hear it once in a while
