2011 BREEDING SEASON SUMMARY



Triplets born for second consecutive year – In 2011, the West End nest on Catalina became the home of the first naturally hatched bald eagle triplets on record for the Channel Islands. Again this year, three eggs are incubating on the same nest. Other basic numbers relating to the 2011 bald eagle breeding season on Catalina include:
  • Seven Nests were active, meaning that adults were present and courtship behaviors were witnessed.
  • All seven nests had eggs laid in them.
  • A total of 15 eggs were laid.
  • Nine of these eggs hatched.
  • Eight young fledged, or successfully flew from the nest.
  • The Middle Ranch chick was the only one that did not survive.
