All Eagles All The Time 2007 is an Archival/History in Videos and Still captures showing the various stages throughout the year in the lives of the Eagles on the Santa Cruz Nest.

First we have the Restoration of the nest....aka Nestorations by the A-49 Cruzers....The eagles started bringing sticks to their nest prior to the new year...but from January the pace has increased and the eagles are visiting regularly bringing more supplies to get the nest ready....the expectation is Eggs in February.

All these Videos and Stills have been selected by the capturers for this thread. You can see more videos and still pictures by visiting the Daily Observations thread. Now renamed Nest Watch

We ask you NOT to 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.

Early Morning Visit to the Santa Cruz Nest

K10 & K26 start the day off doing nestorations on their nest in preparation for eaglets. Two spots to watch closely in the video are when K10 pokes himself with a stick he's moving and startles himself at 3:02. He then goes up to 'tease' K26, who doesn't seem to appreciate it much and leaves at 3:55. At 8:26 watch the lower left portion of the window for K26 flying by seconds before returning to the nest at 8:31.

Commentary by Cumbrian

5:33PM he flew to the left .... she was stretching her neck this way and that I expected her to follow ... but she flew down to the front patio instead ... he returned at 5:36PM with another stick ...

She moved onto the far branch ... he moved onto the front branch and flew off to the left at 5:40PM she stayed ... not that we could see her very well for the dark ... then she flew off to the left also at 5:42PM.

They were certainly entertaining tonight ... she was determined to move that branch and he was doing his best whilst on the front branch to assist her ... nearly standing on his head at one point ... then she moved it over to the far left of the nest and I thought she was going over the edge with it!

K-10 and K-26 have both arrived at the nest within minutes of each other. He starts to move some sticks at the back, between the front and middle branches.

She calls to him ........................................................... he joins her on the branch.
user posted image user posted image
She starts to move down off the branch .......................going to place herself for a bonding session!
user posted image user posted image
She is directly under the front branch which he is on ..... they cannot connect! He flies off and she is left on the nest!

When he returns they both struggle with that same left front stick he has worked on for days.
She is more interested in looking up at the sky.
user posted image user posted image
He nearly goes over the left side ...she has moved off to the top right of the nest.Look at the look she is giving him .... Poor Guy!
user posted image user posted image
More sweet calls to him .... he joins her on the branch again ....The moment has passed so he leaves again. She follows him shortly after.

QUOTE (IWS Crew @ Feb 14 2007, 09:42 AM)
Hi all,

A32 is a Santa Cruz eagle. She was released on the island in 2004, so she is just turning 3 years old this spring, hence the mottled plumage. It is unusual to have another eagle land on the nest. I do not recall ever seeing another eagle land at a nest during the breeding season, but often times there are other eagles in the area. Perhaps Peter has seen other eagles at nests before?

As far as we know right now, A32 is not a breeder and is not territorial, so she is just cruising the island looking for food, etc. She may not remain long (although she looks pretty comfortable right now), and I'm sure K-10 and K-26 will return to normal nesting activities. However, it will be interesting to see what happens. She is pretty big (did you see the way the branch lowered under her weight?), so I imagine the adults are perched close, just keeping an eye on her, not wanting to get in a fight with a big, perhaps aggressive, eagle. Not worth it. Interesting goings on nonetheless.

Jessica
