MSRP Facebook Challenge

Screenshot taken from Sauces Canyon Bald Eagle nest on Santa Cruz Island.


MSRP is holding a Facebook Challenge to promote Bald Eagle nesting season on the Channel Islands and to highlight the Bald Eagle live webcams broadcasting from several of these islands. The challenge involves posting screenshots taken from one of the Channel Island webcams to MSRP’s Facebook page. We are looking for screenshots that show different stages of the Bald Eagle nesting season which runs from January to July (see schedule below). MSRP staff will review images from each nesting stage and vote on the best one. We will be looking for images that are creative but also educational. The person who posted the best image will receive their own DVD copy of the PBS documentary Return Flight. One person from each nesting stage will have a chance to receive a DVD.
