Title: Meet the Adult Pairs.
Description: On the Channel Islands Eagles' Nests.
cdn-cdn - August 29, 2007 03:51 PM (GMT)
As you all know All Eagles All The Time is an Archival/History where Videos and Still captures showing all the various stages throughout the year in the lives of all the eagles on the nests with WebCams are posted.
During the Nest Adoption Challenge for 2007 we further discovered that not only were there nests on Catalina and Santa Cruz Islands but there is the possibility that there could be a nest in the future on Santa Rosa Island too.
We have Two EagleCams on Catalina: Two Harbors and West End Nests. One EagleCam on Santa Cruz: Pelican Harbor Nest.
There may be a possibility that there will be further Cams on other nests this year or in the future.
On Catalina Island there are also nests at ... Pinnacle Rock ... Seal Rocks and Twin Rocks.
On Santa Cruz Island the Grassland Nest aka the South Side or Malva Real Nest ... is one of the few Bald Eagle ground nests found in the lower 48 states.
All of these nests have successfully hatched and fledged eaglets.
Rattlesnake Canyon and Thompson Reservoir .. now known as Middle Ranch on Catalina Island .... Cueva Valdez on Santa Cruz Island and North Shore .. now known as the Trap Canyon Nest on Santa Rosa Island all have Non Breeding Pairs who may have established a territory but not yet built nests.
So in order for us all to keep track on Who is Who on each of the known ... and hopefully ... to be established nests ...
Please Meet the Adult Pairs listed below in Alphabetical Order ... on each of the Islands ...
Thank you to Dr. Sharpe for the eagle information.
Thank you to Dr. Sharpe, Steffani, and members of the IWS crew for the eagle photos. Non-staff members are mentioned individually with their eagle photo.
Much appreciation also goes out to the members of the Nest Observations team for their screen captures.
In February 2008 Dr Sharpe and Steff upgraded the cameras on the Two Harbors and West End nests.
There was always a camera on the Seal Rocks nest for the biologists to monitor the activities on this nest, but Dr Sharpe moved it higher up on the tree and it came online on February 15/08.
Dr Sharpe also put a camera on the Twin Rocks nest but the eagles decided to move ... and their new nest site is inaccessible for a camera to be installed.
So this year we have Three Eaglecams on Catalina Island ... 2 with sound ... SR and WE. TH also had sound but something went wrong with the equipment on the mainland.
Plus the Eaglecam on the PH nest on Santa Cruz Island which continues to have sound.
Also in the 2008 nesting season we were delighted to learn that the pairs on the Rattlesnake Canyon Nest .. Catalina Island ... Trap Canyon Nest .. Santa Rosa Island .. and a .. 1st .. brand new .. all Santa Cruz Island nest (Both eagles .. A-02 and A-28 .. were released on SC) the Sauces Nest all became breeding pairs. Unfortunately none of the nests were successful this year.

Catalina Island These photos are of Dr. Sharpe tethered to a helicopter and being lowered to the Pinnacle Rock nest. Inside the box is a chick! In 2007 the cost of the helicopter ride was becoming prohibitive. It was decided that the eggs would be left in the nest instead of being switched and replaced with fake eggs, and later with a fostered chick or chicks, as had been done in seasons past. To everyone's delight, the chicks hatched successfully in the nest! This policy of leaving the chicks to hatch naturally has continued. In 2007 both the Pinnacle Rock and Seal Rocks eagle parents hatched a pair of eaglets.
These were the first eaglets to hatch naturally on Catalina Island since 1945. 2007: chicks K00 ^"^ and K71(deceased Sept. 2007 :candle: :^^^: )

Dr. Sharpe said that the pair never attempted to breed, as far as he knows.
:<<>>: K47 in 2008
:<<>>: Rattlesnake Canyon
:<<>>: K47 and K80 live in an area of Catalina Island that is very popular for kayaking, swimming, and fishing. Local people see them often. They leave messages for the IWS staff or let them know in person when they bump into each other in town when the eagle pair has been spotted. Rattlesnake Canyon is really only accessible by water and it is difficult to take photos of them from a bobbing boat!Thank you very much to forum member Lala for photos #5, 6, and 7.

2013: K31 (m) "Edge" ^"^ and K32 (f) ^"^ "Shasta" The Seal Rocks eagles were allowed to keep their eggs in the nest for the first time in 2007. The eggs hatched successfully. The parents weren't quite sure what to do as the first chick was hatching, since they had never seen this happen before! The mother, K34, was trying to feed the chick before it was even out of the egg! This was the second historic hatch on Catalina Island, after the Pinnacle Rock chicks. Congratulations, IWS!

<3 :<<>>: The Seal Rocks male, K25, was rescued from drowning in the spring of 2007 by a kind Catalina fisherman and a helper. K25 had become tangled in some fishing line and was floundering in the water. The fisherman saw his distress and with help from the other man, reached K25, untangled him, and set him free.

In March 2009 K25 and K34 moved their nest location down the cliff and closer to the water.

Santa Cruz Island also known as Malva Real or Carl's nest 2006: A60, the second chick (after A49 Cruz) hatched in the wild in 50 years on Santa Cruz ^"^
2007: IWS crew found broken egg in nest
2008: two chicks hatched but did not survive :candle: :^^^: :candle: This presentation is dedicated to A04, the first Santa Cruz reintroduced eagle to become a mother. After observing that both of the 2008 chicks were deceased, and that A04's transmitter was showing no signals of movement, the IWS team went to the Grassland nest area. They found A04 dead, and have surmised that this was caused through injuries sustained while defending her chicks, likely from another eagle. A04 was a courageous mother who lost her life trying to save her eaglets. She will be greatly missed.
:soar: :^^^: :candle: 2009: A17 becomes the new partner; no active nest was located by the IWS crew
2010: failed nest; broken shells from two eggs were found under the nest tree
2011: A35 is now the female at this nest; no eggs this year ... some semblance of a ground nest was found
