Welcome

Welcome to the Pelican Harbor 2014 Nesting Season. This thread is devoted to K26 and her handsome mate K10 and their kids.
Additionally, this thread is a tribute to this pair and also provides us with an opportunity to journal and document their life events over
the course of a year.

Recognition & Thanks

We would like to extend our warmest thanks and gratitude to the Institute for Wildlife Studies (IWS) for providing the live bald eagle cam and for all they do to
promote the conservation and recovery of the bald eagle populations to the Channel Islands! The IWS Bald Eagle Restoration Program is second to none...
for more information on their programs visit their web site at iws.org.

As always thanks to all our members that contribute to our journal here ... its your observations, captures and videos that enhance the learning
process and each time you share here it creates a much more enjoyable experience for all of us here ... so warmest thanks to you all!

We would also like to thank the Channel Islands Live Eagle Cam Discussion forum (CHIL) for the extensive journal that they have compiled over the
years on all the bald eagle families that nest on the Channel Islands. Their web site is a wonderful tribute to the birds and a valuable resource
to us all ... so warmest thanks to all fellow eagleholics that contribute and perch there!

K26 (F) & K10 (M) - Family History

In 2001 our resident male K10 was hatched at the San Francisco Zoo and then fostered into the Twin Rocks nest on Catalina Island.
In 2002 our beautiful resident female K26 was hatched at the San Francisco Zoo and then fostered into the West End Nest.

Although K26 and K10 were both raised on Catalina Island they have set up their territory and nest on Santa Cruz Island the most
northern Channel Island just off the coast of California.

Here is a Summary of their Nesting Seasons

2006 - A very special season; K26 laid two eggs; one egg hatched; this chick was the first chick to hatch in the wild on the Channel Islands since 1949
This special chick was named "Princess Cruz" A49 and she fledged without incident; Cruz is now paired with A-64
2007 - One chick; successfully fledged A63 (M) "Limuw," found deceased in Nevada
2008 - Two chicks; A65 "Skye" & A64 "Spirit" - both male; both knocked off nest by a juvenile eagle when they were about 6-1/2 weeks old, both later released from hacking tower; Skye later drowned; A64 Spirit paired with Cruz A49 (Fraser Point Nest)
2009 - Two chicks hatched but died shortly after hatching from unknown causes
2010 - Two chicks; A69 Malik and A68 Braveheart (both male); both fledged successfully (both doing well as far as we know)
2011 - K26 & K10 abandoned original nest ~ built a nest ~ Chinese Harbor area~ abandoned that nest ~ built a nest in Twin Harbors area.
2011 - One chick A74(F) Karana; fledged (doing well as far as we know)
2012 - Birds used new nest; K26 laid two eggs but only one survived and hatched; Marcus (M) as named by viewers fledged at 11 weeks (spotted;doing well) .
2013 - The birds took the year off; no activity observed at this nest; it is possible they have constructed a new nest although this is not confirmed yet.
2014 - Two Chicks; A92 Named Liberty (M) & A98 (M) Named Malibu Both fledged; no cam on the nest that was used this year; the webcam is at the former PH nest

Note: From the Institute for Wildlife Studies - From the Bald Eagle Nest Information for 2013 Clapping

This nesting season the Channel Islands Bald Eagle Restoration Program reached a milestone: a second generation eagle successfully fledged! Tagged "A-89", she is the offspring of Princess Cruz A-49, who was the first eagle to hatch naturally on the islands in over 50 years (2006). In 2012, at 6 years of age, A-49 began nesting on Santa Cruz Island. She had 1 chick who unfortunately died after a few days. This year, A-49 nested with A-64 at Fraser Point, where A-89 successfully fledged.

2014 - Season:

The adults moved to a new nest so no live cam on the new nest this season.

  • adults return: N/A Our PH pair do not migrate as food is plentiful year round.
  • eggs laid: Two
  • hatched: Exact Date Unknown
  • banded: A92 (F) ; A93 (M)
  • named by viewers: A93 Liberty
  • fledged: Exact date unknown
  • Chicks last seen: Unknown no cam on the nest



Tentative Hatch Timelines based on an Incubation period of 33 to 40 days Insert Timeline once eggs are laid

Note: Many eggs hatch on or around Day 37 however, as you can see from the timeline it may happen sooner or later as per the timeline.
The eggs hatch in the order they were laid; generally egg number one hatches on or around Day 37 with the remaining eggs hatching a bit sooner.

Good Morning Pelican Harbor wave

I have unlocked this thread with hopes that we see our beautiful Pelican Harbor pair Red Heart

K26 & K10 soon fingers crossed This majestic pair did not nest (that we know of in 2013) and

they never visited this nest so we are not sure if they have abandoned this nest or whether they

will decide to use it again. It is possible that K26 and K10 have built a new nest and if that is the

case we are hoping that the IWS team locate it prior to the 2014 nesting season.

We are certainly missing this beautiful pair Wub and we remain hopeful for a busy 2014

nesting season....talons, toes, fingers everything is crossed!

Here is a look at the nest this morning.
