A brand new eaglecam to watch with two young eaglets! Bald Canyon on San Clemente Island in California

The IWS (Institute for Wildlife Studies) in California has brought us many wonderful eaglecams over the years and they have just added a new one called the Bald Canyon nest on San Clemente Island which is part of the Channel Islands located off the California coast.  The parents are A-32, a female, hatched in Alaska and then later released on the Islands in 2004 and K-76, a male hatched on the Islands in 2007.  The two little ones currently on the nest were hatched April 9th and 11th.  Here’s a map to better show where the island is.   And of course the link to the cam: http://www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream.html or http://www.ustream.tv/channel/mzGQjgFW5e3 (on our main cam list you will find it listed with the IWS nests)

Successful rescue at the Wolf River eaglecam nest

Eaglecam viewers noticed one of the young eaglets had been struggling to move in the nest.  To the rescue, Mike, who climbed the tree and untangled the little one from the nest material that kept it from moving!   All is well at the nest tonight, with a parent returning a few minutes ago.  Link to cam: http://www.livewildlifecams.com/Wolf%20River%20Eagles.html

Third Hatch well in progress at the Decorah North Nest!

Yay!  The third eaglet at DNN is hatching!  We were treated to a very close up view a few minutes ago as the siblings were getting fed. Making very good progress at hatching!   Link to cam: http://www.ustream.tv/exploreDecorahEaglesNorthNest

Partial nest collapse at the SWFL nest, eaglets are A-OK!

Last night part of the nest at the Southwest Florida eaglecam fell.  Luckily the eaglets are old enough that it isn’t a serious problem.  Eaglet E7 officially fledged a few days ago, and E8 is expected to fledge soon, so both are in good shape as far as handling the smaller nest area, although I heard they were looking a bit quizzical about where the rest of their nest went.  :)  Link to cam: http://www.dickpritchettrealestate.com/eagle-feed.html

Second Hatch well in progress at the CarbonTV eaglecam nest!

Checking in at first light this morning, happy to see that the second little one is almost out of its shell at the CarbonTV nest!  Link to cam: http://www.carbontv.com/cams/carbontv-eagle-cam/

First Hatch complete at the CarbonTV eaglecam nest!

Yippee!  We have our first hatch at the CarbonTV cam in Michigan!  I also see what looks suspiciously like a pip on the second egg, but really can’t tell for sure, so will have to watch and see what develops, but wouldn’t that be cool to  have two hatches so close together on this nest?  Link to cam: http://www.carbontv.com/cams/carbontv-eagle-cam/  

Second Hatch underway at the HWF Delta2 eaglecam nest!

Early stages, but a definite crack in the egg as the second hatch at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation’s Delta2 cam gets underway!  Link to cam: http://www.hancockwildlife.org/staticpages/index.php/Delta2-TwoCamsChat

Heartbreak at the Ft St Vrain nest – all three eaglets perish in storm

I just have no words, and posting through tears.  The parents were heroic in trying to protect their babies from the cold storm last night, but it just wasn’t enough and all three eaglets have perished from the cold, stormy weather.  So much sadness for all who love and follow this nest. ((hugs))
