SIDNEY OBSERVERS - No Chat

Welcome Sidney Observers

This thread is not an official research thread but instead a thread for those who wish to post the facts of what is happening on the nest without discussion and chat. It is open to ALL H.W.F. MEMBERS.

If you prefer a discussion type thread please visit Sidney Nest Discussion forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=410

Screen captures and videos in moderation are welcome in this thread if they back up an observation. Please do not enhance your screen captures in anyway. All enhanced screen captures should be posted in the Sidney Discussion thread.

Please do not add Smilies to your posts. You may use ( Out out ) if you are stepping away from your computer and not watching the camera.

Additional information may be added to existing posts to keep events in order --- idea being that if no one posts for 3-4 hours, and the discussion thread reports a food delivery during that time, one of the TMs could add "food delivery reported at 2:43 on the discussion thread.

This thread is intended to record what happens at the nest as seen on the cam; any posts that don't directly report what is seen/heard on the nest cam may be deleted after 24 hours if they do not substantively add to the understanding of what is occurring at the nest.

Please be aware that the Research Monitors will periodically edit these posts to ensure a uniform format for research!


LIST OF THINGS THAT SHOULD BE OBSERVED

-Nest time of each event added to your post when possible
-Arrival and departure time of adults
-Identification of the adult as male or female in any activity, but note adult, if you aren't sure.

-Any behavioural activity that is out of the ordinary or has changed
-Nest building activity, who and what
-Unusual weather
-Other nest-neighbour activity that impacts the eagles
-Egg laying behaviour and egg laying
-Egg turning activity, who and how often
-Egg hatching, adult behaviour and subsequent activities
-Food deliveries, who brings it (if you can ID), what type of food is brought (name fish if possible), how long the eaglet is fed in minutes and by whom. (often the food deliverer is not the feeder)
-Out of the ordinary behaviour by adult delivering food (like male delaying feeding until female arrives)
-Feather growth and appearance of eaglet daily
-Activity of eaglet daily, new behaviour (ie. standing on one leg)
-Mantling
-Branching
-Flight training - length of time, # of flaps, new activity daily
-Vocalizations of eaglet as they change
-Eaglet behaviour toward adults and other birds that enter the nest
-Unusual activity, such as intruders
-Fledging activity of eaglet
-Post fledging activity such as time spent on nest or visible branching activity, sleeping on nest, sleeping as flatlet or on one leg, food delivered to the nest by parents or fledgling
-Adult behaviour post fledging

If you have questions please send a PM to a Forum Assistant or Topic Monitor.

Thank you ALL so much for your enthusiasm and contribution to this very important thread and Happy Eagle-ing !

For typing purposes and uniformity some observers have decided to call the eaglet "Solo" while waiting to see if it it eventually gets a formal name.

We have watched these eagles since 2006!
During that time they've successfully raised nine eaglets!
Good health and an abundance of food contributed to their success.
They built two strong nests and maintained them.
No nest collapses or weather disasters, thank goodness.

2006: Victoria and Sidney
2007: Skye
2008: Triplets in the new nest (Sunny, Angel, Freddie)
2009: Breeze, Hero, Tiny
