As you know All Eagles All The Time 2010/2011 is an Archival/History in Videos and Still captures showing the various stages throughout the year in the lives of the Eagles on the Two Harbors Nest on Catalina I[sland.

We watched the eagles start their Nestorations in September 2010, when they started to bring in fluff and branches.

Lots of bonding has taken place on the nest and ... on February 17th, 2010 at 8:31pm .. K-82 laid their first egg.

So here we are ... onto the next important stage ... Eggs and Incubation.

The Videos/Stills and Screen Captures .. posted here on this thread .. have been selected .. as their favourites ... by the members who have captured them on Nest Watch.
You can see more videos, and still pictures, by visiting the Daily Observations thread. Also known as Nest Watch

Again we ask you not to post comments in this thread. VIEWING ONLY PLEASE! This will enable faster viewing by Dr. Peter Sharpe and the IWS Team ... for record purposes .... and also for members and visitors to the forum.

Capturers are asked to wait until Cumbrian or EDblue (Eagle Duo) posts the first thread of each day before reserving a space for your captures of the day to keep continuity to the archives.

NEW PARENTS on the NEST!

February 18, 2011


For the 3rd year in a row, K82 laid her 1st egg on the evening of Feb. 17th.
K81 arrives home this morning to a sight he's been longing for... an egg.


He looks into the nest closely and..... .......................................Over he goes to see his precious egg.


.......................................K81 is one happy Dad, incubating his egg in his fortress of fluff.

STRATEGIES of INCUBATION!

February 19, 2011



After spending the night on the nest .. but not really incubating the egg .. K-82 flies off.

...........................
.................................K-81 returning after a few ins/outs.


............................. 6:53am. K-81 resumes incubation!


8:09am. K-81 brings more fluff.................................................. Snuggles into it!

........................................
................................................. 10:26am. Dad brings Mom a fish!


3:17pm. K-82, incubating, calls out as an intruder flies too close to the nest. K-81 comes to assist.


............................................Back to normal!
