It has been an interesting year for sure at the IWS Catalina West End nest. First, the beloved mom eagle Wray, who has nested here for many years, disappeared. A young female K87 (Lightning) arrived and it appears that she and the male at the nest K01 (Superman) have been forming a serious bond. Then last night, near midnight, another female K91 (Thunder) came in and battled K87 at the nest. K91 returned to the nest apparently having won the battle. Interestingly K91 is the sister of K87. As I type today, K91 is on the nest. The male, Superman was on the nest earlier, but left when K91 arrived. So the plot thickens and all we can do is watch it play out.
