Historic Hatch at Two Harbors

Bald Eagles are once again not just surviving but thriving on the Channel Islands and Catalina Island off the Coast of California. This video is of the first hatchling of an eaglet at the Two Harbors nest in many a year, since DDT contamination had renderd their shells so thin the parents were unable to incubate them to the hatching point. I have been following the work of a man named Dr Peter Sharpe who has been retreiving the eggs from the nests on these islands and artificially hatching them at a fostering facility on Catalina Island while the adults would continue to incubate wooden eggs. Once hatched and a few days old he would return them to the nest for the care of their parents. Todays video gives you a chance to see through the eyes of the Bald Eagle what they should have been seeing for many a year had we not messed with their environment to the point that they actually were endangered by human choices. I congratulate Dr Sharpe and all those who have worked so hard to remove the Bald Eagle form the Endangered list. It must never ever happen again.

Although I had won an opportunity to see the fostering facility last year, I was unable to complete the trip. This year Dr Sharpe chose to not foster any eggs and see if in fact this nest among several others were once again able to hatch their own. Watch the glorious and exciting result in this video made this morning for Two Harbors.

Is an Historic Hatching imminent at Two Harbors?

This year Dr Sharpe has chosen to not foster any eggs to the incubation facility. All of the eagles are brooding their own eggs. Two Harbors eggs are do to hatch at any time now. Will it happen? What will be the eagle's reaction as one of those eggs actually starts to peep and come to life instead of arriving int he nest a few days old. What kind of parents will they be with their first hatch? To me right now Two Harbors is in fact the cam to not miss watching over the next few days. So much to see that has not been seen before by this pair and thier young if all goes well. You can watch this cam here

NCTC Celebration

As we were watching the still cam on NCTC blog and realized that it did in fact appear that there is in fact now life under our Belle, and Liberty began bringing a feast to the nest for his family

one of the Bloggers Lolly mentioned that it was On This Day in History that Perry Como's Catch a Falling Star became a Golden Hit. I have chosen to set the video of todays happenings to that pretty song from Perry Como...it is in fact a Golden Moment for us who enjoy this nest and a very special Irish Blessing indeed.
