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!

“A request from Dr. Sharpe”

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.

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.

Thank you!

Fraser Point
Hi, I recorded from the Fraser point cam yesterday, but could not edit the videos before today. The first video shows the eagles bringing nest materials to the nest, the second video starts with a prey delivery from A-64, a hugs prey. A-49 eats a long time from this prey, A-64 flew in and out, at the end of this video he got the prey remains.
I took a look on the codes from some week ago, I tried several different codes, but I cannot figure out.

Fraser Point Cam / 01.25.2018 / A-49 and A-64 brings a lot of new nest materials.

Fraser Point Cam / 01.25.2018 / A-64 delivered a prey, he continues with the nest work

FP 5.11
A64 wakes to call and trumpet to the rear. Not alert, but drowsy. He begins to doze right off again. Maybe he was dreaming

5.39
A64 alerts to the left, then rear, then left again.

5.40
He tracks it below him and watches it walk beneath him

5.41
He follows it back to the left and stares down at it. Think he's falling to sleep again ??

A64 does a bow stretch, then looks to the front. Haven't heard any calls, so not sure what he's tracking. Probably Jays and Flickers

6.24
He watches over toward the nest again, then left and down below

Cam pans over to the nest. A64 is gone. Cam pans around and zooms out. No one seen. It moves in to show nest and branches
