New Santa Cruz update
http://z7.invisionfree.com/CHIL_EagleCAM/index.php?s=ac66a3c1abb89f185920fad5fe419afc&showtopic=9012

The highlight (for me anyway is this!)   bigsmile love

Good news! The Pelican Harbor birds (K-10 and K-26) have also started incubating. Toward the end of last nesting season, Helen spotted a new nest in the vicinity of the Pelican pair’s 2012 nest. The new nest is only about 100m away from the 2012 nest, and it looks to be in a much healthier tree (the old nest tree is mostly dead). Hopefully they’ll commit to this one for several years, and stop jumping around from nest to nest. Late last week, I was able to see both birds taking a turn at incubating, but was unable to see how many eggs were in the nest. I did manage to get this shot of the pair while they perched together for a short time during an incubation switch.
They probably laid sometime during the last week of February, so we’ll be looking for hatching around the last week in March, or possibly early April.

This years pair of eaglets from the PH nest have been visiting the old PH nest (aka: the last nest they used).  Sooo Dr. Sharpe turned the camera back on!

Video from this morning compliments of Jann.  Smiley

This is not exactly about the Pelican Harbor pair themselves - but more about their legacy.

Some of you may remember their 2010 eaglets, A69/Malik and A/68 Braveheart:



They were five years old in spring 2015 - and both are first-time Dads!

A69/Malik is now the resident male at the Lopez Canyon nest on Santa Rosa Island, and the proud father of A50(M)/Nimoy, and younger brother A68/Braveheart teamed up A27 (formerly of Sauces Canyon) to establish a new nest at Baby's Harbor on Santa Cruz Island, where they raised A56(M)/Phoenix.  Both chose (or were chosen by) experienced mates - A43, the resident female at Lopez Canyon, is 10 years old and A27 is 11.  

And while I tend to remember the sadness at this nest - the adult offspring of male K10 and female K26 are actually doing very well!  K10 and K26 first nested in 2006 (he was five - just like Malik and Braveheart) - and she was only four).  In the five nesting seasons from 2006 through 2010, they hatched 8 chicks, 6 of which survived to fledge - and four of those are back nesting on the islands and raising chicks of their own!

Their first chick, A49/Cruz ended up establishing a nest at Fraser Point in 2012 with sibling A64/Spirit; she was 6 and he was 4 that first year, and they did have one chick which died shortly after hatching.  Then in 2013, they raised A89 (F)/Sapphire who fledged successfully, becoming the first offspring of wild-fledged eagles to fledge on the Channel Islands since the species disappeared from the Channel Islands in the 1950s and 60s.  And they fledged two chicks in 2014, and two in 2015 - producing 5 young eagles so far.  And the Fraser Point pair is scheduled to get a camera for 2016!

So - four adult offspring - and 7 grand-juvies, and counting!  love

Patti, thanks for the video link to 'the Princess'  bigsmile

Judy, thanks so much for doing the recap!  It is terrific to know now that so many of the young from years
ago are now adults and doing well.  flower  

I hadn't been following any very close except the West End and Two Harbors so am especially thrilled to hear that A27 found a new mate and raised a family. love  I felt so bad for her when she lost her nest.

........... And the Fraser Point pair is scheduled to get a camera for 2016!

Fraser Point cam is up and running. bigsmile

Perhaps if they use the nest, maybe we can get a thread for it?  it is a terrific view!
I have a cap but PB is down for maintenance right now.  

From the chat...
broomville101 10:04 AM- Dr. Sharpe- if you're in here, didn't you mention that A-49 was observed incubating on Feb. 27th of last year?
iwsciber 10:06 AM  FP laid between 2/5 and 2/18 last year.

Posting this here ... because .... this is CRUZ!!

Can't remember what happened with last year ... nothing was posted. (Spirit had disappeared?) I'd have to go to Cheil and look it up. (waiting on a FB answer)

However ..... drum roll please...... this year Cruz has 3 ... yes THREE .... babies!!!  A02, A03 and A04!!  Being tagged as all males but blood tests will be pending.

OK... here's a video update from March .... Cruz is still with A64 ... last year's nesting was interrupted because of the Golden Eagle that seemed to want their nest.  They moved this year and built a new nest.  Smiley
