Nest Watch ? Sunday, April 15, 2018

April 15th, 2018, 7:08 am #1

<::: [b][size=75][color=red]PLEASE READ[/color][/size][/b]

[b]Egg...citing News.

The BC nest of...K-76/m & A-32/f...now has :^: :^: on their nest.

The FP nest of...A-64/m & A-49/f...now has :^: :^: :^: on their nest.

The SC nest of...A-40/m & A-48/f...now has :^: :^: :^: on their nest.

The TH nest of...K-81/m & K-82/f...has ONE egg...laid April 2nd.

The WE nest of...K-01/m & K-91/f...now has :^: and ONE egg. Unfortunately the first egg, laid February 8th, was non-viable.[/b]



The adults will be taking turns brooding the chicks and incubating the eggs. Normally during this time, or at a switch, the eggs will also be rolled. This is to prevent the developing embryos/chicks from sticking to the inside of the shells.

While IWS is interested in the above information, and would be especially interested in knowing if an adult leaves the nest and the eggs are 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 [b]Gentle Reminders[/b] about posting on this thread. (Helps to save time when reading through it.)

Please remember that it is the [b]CHANNEL ISLANDS NESTS ONLY[/b], either on or off camera, that we post our observations/comments about.

There are [b]FIVE IWS[/b] nests with cameras online, so it is important to know [b]WHICH NEST[/b] you are observing.

Please put the Initials at the start of your post.

These nests are all in California...so it's [b]Pacific Time[/b] on this coast.

We prefer that the Quote Button is [b]not[/b] used on this thread...and if you must use it...because you are referring to something on a previous page...then take [b]TEXT[/b] only...never captures or video.

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.

SC - 12:25am - The owl struck from behind, flying in from the right and banking back to the right behind the nest.





All strikes began on the right.
1:45am - Owl swooped down from above & struck a sleeping A-48.
1:58am - Owl came from the right front & struck A-48, banked back to the right.
4:01am - Owl clipped A-48's head while she was preening.
4:46am - Owl struck A-48 while sleeping & banked back to the right.
5:34am - Owl stuck A-48 as she was looking to the left.


These are the ones I either saw or heard about.
There may or may not have been more.
