6:36 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I have checked the rollback and there's been no one on the nest. I will log into the cams now so that we may see the eagles come out of the stick tree this morning...hoping they come to the nest

6:40 am - it is still quite dark out this morning....Sunrise is at around 7:18 am.....I was hoping since we now have a good view of the stick tree from the W Cam that I would put that cam out on the stick tree and leave the E Cam on the nest but I may change that up if I find the lighting better on the E Cam

6:53 am - Yesterday morning the adult cam out of the stick tree at 7:07 am so will keep a close eye on the stick tree soon. Rooster is calling.

6:59 am - we cannot see the poles or towers right now due to the fog. Can see the evergreen tree but still a little dark. Rooster continues to call out....I wonder how Ma & Trooper are going to like their new neighbor?

7:15 am - I have not seen any movement in the stick tree and I have also zoomed in to try to find the eagles but can't see them.

7:27 am - I just noticed that the W Embedded Cam is offline....not sure when it went down but will try to report it.

Can just barely see the center tower...no one there.....I was able to check some of the other poles and towers and did not see anyone out there. The First tower is not visible at this time.

Good Monday Morning,

Ty Sue for the updates this am. I've been on since 6:06 am nest time watching patiently.
looked like adult was still in the stick tree this am when you zoomed in few min ago.
Thought I could see white head..

My face is right up to screen to see like I can get any closer to what the cams are but
we get caught up...

We wait patiently for sight of our eagles, sound of Ma wonderful froggy call telling us She is Home!! , Trooper flying in to check the nest out for ma. Anything from our Delta pair..
We are on Eagle time..

We wait!

Good Morning Linux! I know what you mean about having your face to the screen. It's so hard to see clearly with the fog and not so much light. One could go blind trying to find these eagles, lol.

From earlier....I just have to know these things and since I couldn't find an adult in the stick tree this morning....or the other bird that was there last night, I decided to check the E Cam rollback for just after I had check that far right pole, and until all of a sudden an eagle appeared there.....so this is what I caught at 7:28 am at the stick tree...that adult that was seen flying into the stick tree last night cam flying out and headed over the fields to the far right pole.....I am trying to check a little bit further on the rollback to see if that other bird followed them off the stick tree.

8:23 am - still only seeing the one eagle out on the far right tower.
2020-10-05 11_22_33-Greenshot.jpg
Checked around a few times and looked through the E Cam rollback to see if I could find out when that other bird left the stick tree...if they left it....couldn't find it....no other eagles around at this time. It is very foggy out and sometimes cannot even see the far right pole....hoping it clears up later.

I am now off the cams. Everyone have a great day!


Add: Looks like the W Embedded cam came up about 48 minutes ago.

I think the server is being worked on.............don't be surprised if this is an ongoing situation for a while.

12:05 I think it might have been an eagle. It flew off about 5-10 minutes ago and I couldn't find it. Off the cams!

1:05 pm logging into both cams. Noticed the resolution has a max of 720. Oh and both embedded cams are back online. Checked the rollback and didn't see any nest activity.

1:20 pm logging off both cams. Didn't see any birds of any kind as I moved around the area.

The feed is set at 1080 - not sure why it's not available. I'll take a look at the settings, and pass the message on to Ken so he can also check.

We made a couple of changes that we're hoping will get the embedded cams back to full 1080 HD; it may take a little time before they take effect.

good evening,

Thank you all for the scraps and posts today on forum. No sightings of our lone eagle most of the day and into the evening. Odd ?

I think it is Ma, but that is yet to be identified. If Ma, maybe she got tired waiting for Trooper and went off for a bit.
Hopefully soon our eagle pair will both show themselves. And perhaps the juvie as well was just passing through.

I did notice though there are no other eagles back in the area too as I have been watching and cam ops posted as well.
Would think we would see some of them returning and or other eagles passing through delta as they fly onto their destination.
But still time...

We wait and watch for any sign of Ma n Trooper..

? The E cam sound is so low, I have my speakers all the way up on computer and cam site
I even have speakers attached externally on my computer for better sound) and can hardly hear anything.. It is a bit louder on the W cam but not much.

Is anyone else having this issue?
