This is a bit of an experiment. If it works, we'll have a relatively concise summary of what happened at the Sidney nest in 2011, with links to relevant posts in the Sidney Discussion thread, the Sidney Ground Observer thread and possibly other threads, a few pictures, and possibly some links to video archives when they become available.

My plan is to start out by doing a post once a week, summarizing what happened that week. As things get more active, there may be a couple of posts per week. And I'm hoping for a post a day once there are chicks (keeping my fingers crossed for a successful nesting season as I type).

If you see something interesting or strange or just wonderfully typical of behavior on the nest - please PM me with a link to the discussion about it! I will be trying to review as many posts as I can while I update this thread - but I know I'll miss some things, and because I'm not watching this nest myself all that often (there's this thing called work....) - I may not understand the importance or relevance of some pictures or observations unless someone fills me in.

Note: No promises about keeping this up to date! I'll add to it when I can, but do have a husband, a job, two cats, and a number of other responsibilities - so some weeks will be more complete and some entries more timely than others.

I am looking for helpers - if you're interested, please let me know.

And happy eagle watching! Smile

Reserved because it's a whole lot easier to delete a post I don't need than add one later.
