Title: West End Eagle's Nest 2010/2011
Description: Banding Day to Fledging!


Cumbrian - May 30, 2011 06:24 PM (GMT)
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 West End Nest. on Catalina Island

We have followed them through the Nestorations and then onto the Eggs/Incubation stage. Next was the exciting stage of the Hatchings of their three chicks and following their Early Development in Here a Chick! There a Chick! .... Now we have reached Banding Day .... where the eaglets will get their ‘wing blings’ .... and start on the journey to become fledglings.

In this topic we will also cover Branching ... and the final stage of Fledging.
This will be both a joyous and sad time for us all .... we will be sorry to see them leave the nest .... but we will wish them Safe Journeys when that time finally happens.

As you know all these Videos and Stills 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 that you not 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 oosting or reserving a space for your videos and/or captures of the day to keep continuity to the archives.

Food deliveries had been few and far in between lately but today that all changed. We went from famine to feast!!! :><:

Watching, waiting, and hoping all morning with lots of hungry calls...
user posted image user posted image

Finally, the food starts to arrive and it kept coming all afternoon. :)^
K14/Little D always does great on the initial grab but seems to always lose his prize to his older siblings.
Here he snatches back some food from K12 and K13 leaps down from the rock to search for any leftover scraps.
user posted image user posted image

Then they all go back on lookout waiting for the next meal to arrive. This one went to K13 who would not be denied and had waited the longest.
user posted image user posted image

K12 gives up a great view of her beautiful wings
user posted image user posted image

As evening falls, Wray brings in yet another live flopping >)): and then she rests with her eaglets.
