Title: Nest Watch – Monday, February 27, 2012
Description: 3 EGGS! Congratulations, Wray & K-01!
Eagle Duo - February 27, 2012 08:01 AM (GMT)
<::: PLEASE READWe now have TWO nests with eggs.
nest of .. K-81/m & K-82/f
.. has TWO
eggs .. still to be confirmed/seen.
nest of .. K-01/m & Wray/f
.. have THREE
The adults will be taking turns incubating it and normally during this time, or at a switch, the egg will also be rolled. This is to prevent the developing embryo/chick from sticking to the inside of the shell.
While IWS is interested in the above information, and would be especially interested in knowing if an adult leaves the nest and the egg(s) 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 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 FOUR
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... . . .

“A request from Dr. Sharpe”
|QUOTE (Eagle Guy @ Mar 28 2011, 09:34 AM)|
|We are recording the activity at the Two Harbors and West End nests so that we can identify all the prey brought to the nests to calibrate the results of the nest excavations at the end of the season. 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.|
|QUOTE (Eagle Guy @ Mar 28 2011, 10:35 AM)|
|Maybe prey delivery posts could be started with >>: even if it is a bird or unidentified, so that we can spot them more easily.|
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.
|QUOTE (Eagle Guy @ May 12 2011, 04:45 PM)|
|We are recording prey deliveries at all the online nests, so please continue to use the blue fish for deliveries at any nest.|

Cumbrian - February 27, 2012 05:09 PM (GMT)
... Thanks for finding .. and posting .. that segment in the TH Autorecord .. from last night.
I wondered why K-82 was getting so mad pulling at the branch and wondered if some prey had got stuck there.
K-81's expression was priceless as he checked the branch on his way to the bowl.
I had taken captures ... but took some stills off your video as they were much crisper.Guess that's another thing for my "to do" list!
