7:04 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I am going to log into the cams for a look around.

7:11 am - unfortunately it is just way too foggy out to see anything right now. Providing some s'caps of the visibility since the embedded cams are not up. I think there may be some rain as well as I saw some rain drops on the cam covers
Looking out to the evergreens...I did zoom in to the one evergreen where our eagles perch but it was so blurry I couldn't tell if anyone was there

I am now off the cams. Will check back in about an hour to see if anything has cleared up.


Edit: 7:14 am - I just checked on the embedded cams and it looks like they are both up and came up just around the time I logged into the zoomer cams.

Thank you Sue

Embedded cams back on.
Wow the fog sure is crazy thick this year .We can't see a thing looking around and wonder how our Eagles fly in the dense fog.

Watching and waiting for our Delta eagles to return.

9:03 am - I am logging into the cams. Looks like the embedded cams were offline again after the last time I was logged in. I was able to find the YouTube tape of the 1 1/2 hours after I had logged off and I did not see any activity on the nest during that time or since the cams came back up at 8:58 am.

9:16 am - still hard to see everything clearly. Was only able to see the Delta Port pole and Center tower clear enough to see no one was there. Also the evergreen tree and the stick tree. Still very foggy and some condensation on the cam covers is blocking out view of the far right tower and Tower eagles' area.

10:10 am logging into both cams for a quick check. Checked the rollback and didn't see any nest activity.
10:16 am still really foggy but could somewhat see the tops of the poles and towers. Didn't see any birds.

1:06 pm both cams just went off line. Logging into both cams for a quick look see. The fog is lifting and can see the poles/towers. But didn't see any birds. 1:16 pm logging off both cams.

I just checked the tech thread and JudyB posted this message this morning:
Good morning, everyone. It looks as if all the embedded cams are down. I know Ken was planning to move the server to a location with an even higher speed internet connection than his high speed connection to see if that will help, so that may be what is happening now. I'll post an update when I learn more.

Lots merry maid chatter and on the nest sprucing it up for Ma n Trooper, maybe they know something we don't.

Ty Ken for getting our cams working. So much appreciated all your hard work you do to keep our cams running.

Someone at Center Tower preening, but too small to be an eagle I'd say.

6:37pm......I see the cams on the nest. I think if there were any eagles around we'd be seeing them by now......it will be dark soon. I am not staying on the cams tonight.

If anyone sees an eagle come to the nest please post...........thanks. :nite:

8:57 am the large bird flew off behind the tower.

10:07am.........This is the best view we've had of the distant evergreen tree for weeks now..........the tree in front is being blown aside by this breeze. Looks like possibly a bird in the tree.........but it isn't shaped like an eagle.

No sign of Ma or Trooper.........or any other eagles. Time to come home.

I am now OFF both cams.

11:08 am - Good Morning Delta 2! I checked the rollback since Jean's last post and did not see any activity. I am logging into the cams for a look around.


11:28 am - looked around pretty good and the only birds I saw were down by the bay...some dark ones flying around the poles, and then some white birds flying around the tree by the bay...maybe gulls. No eagles seen.

I am now off the cams
