Bird Nests

Bald Eagle Nests: The Nature Conservancy has a posting about Bald Eagles nesting on Santa Cruz Island.  There are webcams monitoring the nesting Bald Eagles and actually show eggs being laid.  Below are the links to two YouTube videos of the eagle egg laying action.

Condor Nest Found: A Condor nest has been found in the Pinnacles.  The first one in over 100 years.  Click to read article in S.F. Chronicle:  http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/03/10/BAV01CD6K6.DTL&feed=rss.news

Allen’s Humminbird One more nest (added 3/13/10).  There is a video camera focused on the nest of a Channel Islands Allen’s hummingbird. Two eggs were laid near the end of February, and they will probably hatch sometime this coming week.  The chicks will fledge 21 to 28 days after they hatch, so there’s lots of good viewing time between now and then.  Here’s the link to the nest camera: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hummingbird-nest-cam This is the corrected link for the hummingbird cam, the previous one no longer works.
