Watch Live! – Banding day at IWS Two Harbors and West End, Wed and Thurs!

The schedule may change, but the current plan is to band at the Two Harbors nest on Wednesday the 27th, early afternoon Pacific Time, and then West End Thursday the 28th in the morning.   The plan is also to stream the bandings live on the eaglecams.   Link to cams: http://www.iws.org/interactive_nestchat_allUstream.html

Here is the note from Dr. Sharpe of IWS as of about 3pm Pacific time this afternoon (Tue): “I need to fly out to San Clemente Island on Thursday afternoon, so I will band the Two Harbors chick tomorrow in the early afternoon (can’t leave Avalon until around noon) and will band the West End on Thursday morning around 10 am or so.”

    1. I know for IWS this is the usual time. They select it very carefully in terms of ‘flight’ risk, but old enough that their legs are grown enough. We have seen times when they do leave the nest, but they are usually old enough to at least glide down safely to the ground. I don’t know all of the exact considerations, but I know it has been done for many years at this timing (8 weeks I think), so should be fine.
