This is a Daily Thread
normally started by one of the moderators. The links to all the EagleCams are posted in the opening post.
This thread is for members to ‘Nest Watch’
and post what they see happening on the four nests that currently have active EagleCams ....... ** Pelican Harbor .. previously known as Santa Cruz
on Santa Cruz Island. UPDATE:
The camera was removed from this nest in December 2015 and installed on the Fraser Point Nest
on Santa Cruz Island. Sauces Canyon
on Santa Cruz Island.Two Harbors
and West End
on Santa Catalina Island
It is hoped that the EagleCam at Twin Rocks
will be repaired .. and that new Cams will be activated .. at other nesting locations .. in the new season.
Dr. Sharpe and the IWS Team were asked, on behalf of the membership, what we
could do to assist them ... be the volunteer eyes and ears as it were.
He replied that they were primarily interested in the Lay Date
... they recorded the Time, that they stand, Roll the egg/s, Lay Down, and Switch with their mate.The Most Important Thing
was Prey Delivery Times, By Whom, and What It Was
.... sometimes that is impossible to tell due to the distance and camera angle.... but at least Bird or Fish
They had plenty of in-depth behaviour data for adults and chicks so didn't need any more. That Information
could still be recorded for our
benefit, for future information.
To enable Dr Sharpe and the IWS Crew, and anybody-else that should require this information, to access it quickly .. please remember that it is the CHANNEL ISLANDS NESTS ONLY
... either on or off camera ... that we post our observations/comments about on this thread.
To assist in further learning about Eagles .... Eaglepedia -- as researched by Harpo (tidbits) is also posted .. at relevant times .. on this thread.IWS Updates
This thread is for use by our beloved biologists to post the weekly updates about the eagles and their whereabouts etc.
Both the Catalina Island Updates and the Northern Channel Islands Updates are normally posted on Wednesdays.Daily Chat
This is another Daily Thread
which is normally started by an East Coaster because they are up before the West Coasters ... it saves duplication that way ... however anyone that is up late ... early hours of the morning ... may start this thread, preferably not before midnight.
This is where you can visit with other members, send Birthday, Anniversary, and other Greetings and discuss a variety of subjects.
