The 2022 breeding season is drawing to a close. The chicks are still on campus, but have only sporadically been visiting the Campanile. We will still try to document any sightings on camera, but can’t make any guarantees about where they will choose to spend their time!
This has been a truly unprecedented year and we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone involved in this project. First and foremost, we’d like to thank Annie and Grinnell for establishing this territory and defending it year after year. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Alden for stepping in as a parent for the chicks and saving this breeding season. And of course, we wanted to thank our chicks, Grinnell Jr. and Lindsay, for providing so many wonderful moments this year.
In the non-feathered category, there is an army of people and institutions who made this happen. We would like to thank:
–172 Crowdfunding Donors for initial webcam funding
–Thousand of t-shirt supporters for additional webcam and stream support funding
–The University of California, Berkeley
-Permanent Network Funding:
Office of Chancellor Christ
-Communications and Public Affairs:
La Dawn DuVall
–Nest Box Construction:
–Nest Box Installation:
–Nestling Banding 2022:
Zeka Glucs, Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group
–Camera Operation 2022:
–Hatch Day Party
And finally, we’d like to thank everyone who watched every moment with us, from first egg to first flight, your enthusiasm, curiosity, and excitement has really driven this project.
