NEW EGGS, NEW CHICKS


New Generation of Eagles – The 2012 bald eagle breeding season is well underway on Catalina, and things are moving fast. We’ll send updates from time to time, and keep you up to speed as the season moves along, but here are the latest developments:
  • As of April 11, seven nests are active.
  • Two chicks hatched at Seal Rocks.
  • Two chicks hatched at Rattlesnake.
  • One chick hatched at Two Harbors.
  • Three eggs hatched at West End.
  • One egg was laid at Pinnacle Rock. It is many days overdue to hatch, and it seems unlikely now to do so.
  • The nesting pair at Twin Rocks nest hasn’t laid, but may yet. This pair includes a new male, and it’s not uncommon for newly bonded pairs to not get things quite right in their first season. Sometimes, that means eggs are laid a little late, and sometimes it means that eggs don’t get laid at all. Time will tell.
  • At Middle Ranch, three eggs were laid and lost. Something happened to the eggs, and they broke. This nest is now equipped with a research camera. If a nest fails early in the season, like this one did, it’s possible for the pair to lay another set of eggs and successfully hatch them. IWS will be watching.
