|Hey you all. I am from Southern Kentucky. I have been watching this little bit for about a month now. He/she was a little bit of fluffy feathers when I first saw him. He/she has grown so much. can't wait until tomorrow so we can see how really big he/she is. maybe we can find out if he/she is a he/she he/she looks so lonely. I have been wanting to get a game boy for them to put in there with him/her, but no one will go up there and place it in the nest. guess I will have to get hold of who ever is going in there tomorrow and send it up.|

| I am watching from London Ontario Canada. I have been watching this chick since almost the beginning. And am particularly interested in seeing how a lone chick's growth compares with a family scene. ( the Saanich BC Eagle family). I was also interested bcause Santa Cruz nest is a first time for the parents. Now I am so pleased that I will be able to follow the future of this chick.
I watch something like this web not for entertanment but to be part of the concern of the overall wildlife scene that is being taken over by humans, including theiir territories and hunting grounds. Also the food chain that is being poisoned by pollution. As I have said I am so happy to be part of this from the beginning.
I think this chick has done well on the tough love he has had from parents that seemed to be quite bewildered at times. And I think he/she is going to be a beaufiful bird.

| Hi watching from Ocala Florida USA
I got "hooked" on watching eaglets several months ago and now I am following several nests. In West Virginia I am watch a nest with three eaglets who are 11 weeks old and almost ready to fledge. I am also watching nests with two eaglets in Maine and Canada. All at different stages of development. It is so interesting watching the eaglets interact with each other. I feel sorry for this eaglet since he/she is all alone but at least he doesn't have to fight for his/her share of the food like the eaglets in the other nests do.

| I too am thinking that our eagle will leave the nest sooner than most
baby eaglets... Today I saw so much food being put through that
beak.. both by the parent and the baby itself.. he/she is really gaining
the weight. Think how much smaller he/she would be if they were
sharing the meals.

|I read that the parents don't feed them as often the last weeks before they fledge because they want them to lose some weight so they can fledge more safely. makes kind of good sence. he is a cutie pootie. I have been trying to get them to take him a game boy. and now the chance has passed so I guess he will have to do with what ever is left in his nest for now until fledging time.|

| [FONT=Times][SIZE=7][COLOR=blue]I am watching, and have been since the little guy was knee-high to mom and dad, from Ventura County, CA. I think that this web cam and others has done much to increase the interest in these great icons of our country. I am also amazed at the skill and care that the "keepers" have displayed in this endeavor.
I know that the days are dwindleing down as we watch and soon the fledgling will soon take a first attempt at flight.

| I'm watching from: Big Lake National Wildlife Refuge at Manila, Arkansas
Big Lake NWR was started in 1915 to provide habitat and protection for migrating and wintering birds. Big Lake has been important in the recovery of the bald eagle. Eagles came back to nest on the refuge in 1989 and have raised young every year since 1993.
Even though we have eagles close, we can't get close enough to watch and we have no cams.

| I am watching from Santa Barbara, both on the webcam and actually from the mainland! I can see Santa Cruz Island sometime most every day. I always think of the eagles when I look in that direction, wishing I had eagle eyes so I could see them from here!
My e-mail address years ago was "sbeaglewatcher". I had no idea how true that would be one day.
I've been enthralled with all wildlife and domestic animals all my life. I'm especially drawn to eagles, having observed them for years in Alaska and the San Juan Islands in Washington state. I don't really want to travel anywhere I cannot see them! I've seen an eagle nest (with parent and chicks) up close on an uninhabited island in the San Juans. How spectacular!
And how blessed to be able to witness the whole process from egg to fledge, and thanks to the IWS crew even beyond that! I'm a totally addicted to it all.

I watched the Saanich nest in B.C. Canada every day from May until Aug. and this nest on and off for the last few months. I am very excited about following the eagles on this island - I have been getting updates from a friend on another eagle forum and decided to join so I can get them myself!

|Hi everyone! I watch from Arroyo Grande California which is on the Central Coast. I didn't know about the eagle cams till late in July. But once found I became addicted. My favorite was the Vancouver Island BC, because of the sound and the forums with the daily recount of events and videos and pictures. The Maine eagle cam had sound but very very faint. I didn't even realize that Channel Island had a forum and don't even remember signing up Honestly! I will have to read back in these forums for accounts of 49 before I saw him/her. I did observe 49 one day back in the 1st of August for over an hour in the nest with a parent on the branch. The eaglet was manteling over some food but would not eat while the parent was there watching. 49 even turned away from parent and still manteling for another 15-20 minutes till it finally ate for 15-20 minutes. The parent waited out till the eaglet was finished then flew to the branch in the nest. eaglet hopped over to parent bowed head and the parent walked over to see if the food was all eaten and then flew off. That was my best of many times watching interactions of this great eagle family. Where else could you see the entire episode if not for web cams. I just wish they would add sound so that we could listen in. One day I hope to visit Santa Cruz Island it is not that far from me.|

Cessna, that was an excellent post on what activities you observed at the nest. You HAVE to be here with us when the activities start up again.
Regarding sound at the nest, you will be happy to know that the IWS wishes the same, and they are working on it, hopefully (most likely?) for this coming nesting season.
BTW: A49 turned out to be female, after we had all thought she was male for a long time.

I used to live in Arroyo Grande (as well as several of the other little towns in the area). I worked at California Men's Colony but that was a lot of years ago. I left SLO county in 1994 and moved to Napa. The whole area is beautiful.

| Dear whalewtch1,
as you can see we are all eagerly awaiting news and pictures from you. Please post your pictures as soon as you can as the Institute, as well as we, are quite worried about this eagle. Or e-mail Dr. Sharpe directly (Eagle Guy).
Thank you so much for posting and letting us know about this.

|This is excellent news, maybe the mystery will be solved after all.|
|Posted by: Patti Sep 7 2006, 09:44 AM|
| Hi, Whalewtch1; it is true, we would all love to see the photos. If you're having trouble posting them, I think Bea has a good idea in that you could send them directly to Dr. Sharpe at email@example.com
Peter could then post them for you.
Peter's voice mail is (310) 510-2728.
I have written his FAX number the same as his voice mail, but I am doubting myself on this. I could have goofed on the fax number.
Hope to hear from you soon~~Thanks for your exciting news!
|Posted by: Eagle Guy Sep 11 2006, 10:36 AM|
|whalewtch1 e-mailed me a few photos today, and it appears that the bird is a golden eagle with orange wing markers, as I was hoping. I've e-mailed the Wildlife Research Institute in San Diego, which tagged this bird. I may be one of the two eaglets they released from a hacking tower, one of which came from a nest on Santa Cruz.|

|Posted by: Joyce NJ Nov 7 2006, 01:57 AM|
| Thank you all for this warm welcome.
Paula, yes I do watch the eagles at Conowingo in the Fall, in fact I go there anytime of the year to watch them. There are what we call the "regulars" that stay all year, then the migrating eagles. On a good day in the Fall at Conowingo Dam you can see 30+ eagles. They also have a nature trail you can walk and more times than not we have spotted eagles in the trees. It's a great place to eagle watch!
Not too far from the Dam there is a farm that has an eagles nest on it, it is so close to the road, we have watched many eaglets raised in that nest.
BTW it was at that farm 8 years ago that a sick cat came screaming out of the woods and came right to me! She was skinny, full of fleas and ticks, her one eye was shut tight with infection...well thousands of dollars later that cat named "Amber" has been living with us and is happy as can be! Ambers eye is damaged from the infection, she sees an eye specialist in Delaware every 6 months and will have to have eye drops in her eye the rest of her life...but she was worth the money...she is a great cat!!

|I live in Austin, Texas. The company I work for supports the Nature Conservancy from which I found the Nest Cam courtesy of the IWS. One look at A-63 Limuw got me hooked. I just used to read everyone's posts, especially the updates from the IWS biologists. Since Limuw's passing, I have posted only a few times in order to console my broken heart. I can not wait for next year's baby baldies!!!|

|Good Morning from the Finger Lakes region of NYS. I only lurked for a day and then decided to join and have become a pretty faithful nest watcher. I am sharing it all with two kindergarten classes who are delighting in the babies and hopefully, learning about eagles and birds in general. Birds are one of the science topics that we delve into and it just so happens that for one class that is happening concurrently. So thanks to all for the observations, videos and stills. I can't watch the Neokast nests at work but have shared some of the icaptured incubation videos at school. I look forward to hanging out here for years to come.|

| Hey, everyone! I'm Robin. I live in N.J. and work from home as a scopist. One of my clients sent me the Eagle Cam link. I checked it out, it was "nice." I did enjoy the sound effects and decided to minimize the window and let it stream. Suddenly, I saw there was another eagle involved in this nest. During a switch, I discovered there were eggs in the nest and the next day, I saw a poof of gray wiggling about! Needless to say, I'm hooked, I've driven my cyber friends nuts with my observations. They ask how my new neice and nephew are doing.
After seeing the egg I did decide I better get more informed on what I was involved in here. I dare not download the software to give me access to the other cameras or I'll surely never get any work done. I do take out some time to watch the videos!
Thanks to all who are involved in bringing this into our homes, offices, and schools.

|Robin ("Fritzer"), what's a "scopist"?|
|Posted by: hedi Apr 7 2008, 09:58 AM|
| Hi, I know what a Scopist is.
I work in the Courts so I can tell you a Scopist translates the Court Reporters notes.
(I hope I am right in this case)
|Posted by: Fritzer Apr 7 2008, 04:55 PM|
| Yes, Hedi, that's basically what it is. The more detailed (and possibly boring) explanation is that the court reporter's notes are translated into text from steno via specialized software. Then the reporter will send the transcript to a scopist, if they don't do it themselves, who will insert or correct punctuation, fix things that have translated incorrectly or not at all, research spellings and terminology. All using the same type of software the reporter is using.

Hope to see you posting on the NO board. Take care!

| Greetings from suburban Philadelphia, from Bryn Mawr Pa.!
I was informed of this great site by a friend who is a fellow Avian Photographer hence why Leica is part of my name here. I find it challanging to shoot birds of any sort and raptors are hard to get here. Aside from the green eagles who play a game on sundays from late summer to mid winter the only ones i have here are Hawks.
I was a ranger for our National Park service for 27 years but never had the pleasure to work at sites other than Historical sites. I love the diligence the staff does and the ability to get up close and view the nesting without getting attacked.
In the past I came too too close to a nesting red tail hawk here and was driven off. Fortunately The protective parent allowed me to keep my scalp and ears.

| Hi I watch from Manchester, WA. Located across Puget Sound from Seattle, WA. I started my Eagle Watching when a friend of mine in CA sent me the link for BRI and the Maine Nest of which she was watching. It didn't take me very long before I was hooked! Last year those eagles had tragedy hit on Patriot's Day and lost their babies after a terrible storm. They couldn't keep them warm enough.
This year those eagles are keeping everyone guessing and on the blog there, I was given a link to here and registered and I am so happy I did! Now I find myself watching numerous nests at the same time in CA and the Maine Nest, and at times I have heard my family members whisper " Do You Think She Needs Therapy!" What they don't realize is THIS IS MY THERAPY! NO BETTER THERAPY OUT THERE!
Happy and Content Watching

| I'm Kathy, from Woodhaven, MI. I'm a grandmother of 6. I also serve on the Woodhaven city council.
I have been an active gardener for as many years as I can remember. In recent years I had my backyard certified as a wildlife habitate. I plant to encourage wildlife to visit. This year in February I had a visit from a junvenile Coopers hawk, he stayed for two hours. I posted some pix on myspace if anyone would care to check them out. myspace.com/kmlc58 go into my pictures to see the hawk and some other wildlife that has visited.
I came upon the Eagles because I was looking for info on the hawk, I have been hooked ever since.
I would like to thank everyone that works so hard to bring these great creatures back to abundance so they will be around for a long time.

| Hi, I am Lynne from Hilton Head, SC. Started watching about 2 weeks ago and check the nest many times a day. Enjoy when I can watch the feedings. The chicks have really grown. We have a wildlife sanctuary behind us. I have birdhouses out back and right now a chickadee nest and bluebird babies. I am hoping the bluebirds will have their usual 3 nests. I have a camera to put in the house so I can watch on a small TV I will hook it up to. I have passed the webcam site on to friends.
I did a post the other day, probably put it in the wrong thread, it has disappeared.

| Hi Everyone,
I'm Chris, watching from Lawrence, Kansas. I found the IWS website after we started watching three nests around Lawrence and I wanted to learn more about eagles. Of course, I am in love with all of them. :-) They are amazing. More about that when I get around to posting my bio (and pictures too). Things have been a bit hectic here work-wise, but I wanted to make my first post and say hello. I work from home and love checking in on the nests off and on all day and reading the discussion.
|Posted by: cristine1 Apr 30 2008, 07:28 PM|
| My name is Cristine and I teach 3rd grade in Colorado. I started watching the eagles on Victoria Island last year, and so this spring, I decided to search for some more eagle info. That's when I found you all!! I came in right around the time the first egg hatched in the PH nest. How exciting it has all been!!
My 13 year old son and I have since become addictted and you can hear sweet bird calls from all the computers in our house (and my classroom!)
Thanks to all of you savy folks who graciously post videos and pics of the PH and other nests and to Dr. Sharp, Stephani and the others who make this all possible.
This is such an awesome adventure but sometimes also bittersweet. I only say that because my heart is somewhat broken having watched the littlest chick on PH as he/she has struggled to survive. Today, it was as if it had given up trying to get food.
I do hope nature lightens up on this little sweetie soon!
|Posted by: Cumbrian Apr 30 2008, 09:28 PM|
| Chris ... and welcome!
Looking forward to learning more about you when you post your bio ...
|Posted by: Cumbrian Apr 30 2008, 09:33 PM|
| Cristine ... we 'spoke' when you posted in NW ...
Try to just enjoy the experience of watching the eaglets as they develop and grow. The younger chick is finding different ways to get fed.
Sometimes .. like today ... there wasn't a lot of food .. but the other day both chicks were full to bursting and had full crops at the end of the day.

Last night I watched as mom brought in a sea gull for the hungry babies and watched at the feathers flew..then a little later dad dropped off a fish....what a sight to watch mom and dad take such good care of their little guys...

|Hi.......watching from Watkins Glen, New York. I work at our elementary school and a teacher had sent this web page and I bookmarked it to my computer at home and at school. I have been watching it since Skye and Spirit were born. I can truly say I was hooked on them as soon as I started watching them. I am an animal lover, so it's not a surprise to me to feel this way. I was totally devastated when I read about what happened and then watched it. I can say, without embarrassment, that I cried my heart out. Like so many said they are glad the babies will be fine, but my heart goes out to the parents. Those cries from K-26 were so sad. I was wondering as I am watching it now (back and forth) if K-26 and K-10 have been back to the nest at all since yesterday. Or if anyone has seen them anywhere else. I have been reading the discussion boards all the time. It's so sad to see that nest empty when I have watched for so long with the babies in there. Well.......I could go on and on. I want to thank all the people who helped find the babies and everyone else for having this website.|

| Hi Everybody. I've been watching the nests for about three months now and, like most of you, was heartbroken when Spirit and Skye were attacked but so thankful they were rescued. I've become a real eagleholic too. Brings me so much pleasure to check on the different nests and to read the posts from everyone. I live in Lompoc CA about 60 miles north of Ventura. My son and daughter-in-law work in Goleta and he was the one that turned me on to the IWS and the nest cams. He has no idea what he started....smile!
In case anyone is wondering about my nickname (Newf) I was born and raised in St. John's, Newfoundland. Been in the U.S. since 1954 and California since 1973.

| We are watching from Cave Creek, Arizona and also have a secondary home in Prescott Valley, AZ. We are retired now.
My husband raised all types of birds when he was growing up in southern California. He had many birds. He had hawks, several types, pigeons, etc. We used to own a retail plant nursery and sold it in Jan. 2007. We set up the nursery to attract all types of birds.
We had hawks, peacocks (they laid two eggs & hatched one). We were able to get the peacock chick to eat out of our hands. We found your eagle cam through a family member. We really enjoy watching the eagles and eaglets growing up.
We wish you had a cam on a condor nest and peregrine nest.
