8:25 am - still not seeing anyone by the evergreen....they most likely are on the other side of the tree at this point and maybe lower down. I heard something mentioned about the branch they are looking at being about 65 feet up or maybe it was meters, not sure

Good morning, everyone! I think the the crotch of the tree David is interested in is roughly 65 feet up.
Thanks Judy, that's what I thought but hard to tell where that is at from our cam angle.

They may need to trim some branches lower down before the lift can get close enough to the tree.

I'm thinking Larry/Urban Eagle is an experienced lift operator who would volunteer to help if he was available. Not sure if that's him - I think I've met him, but I usually meet a lot of people all at once when we're in BC.

8:53 am - the view with a lift and a couple people there seems very different. The tree branches look much bigger than they appear when we just have the eagles perched there

David said there were several smaller semi-vertical sub-trunks (not sure what to call them) that are going up beside the main trunk of the tree - and those smaller verticals are something like 18 inches at the base - so the tree is fairly large! I'm wondering if one or both of the cams might be placed on those verticals, allowing them to be a bit further away from the nest than was possible in the current tree. David is aware that as the eagles have built up the current nest, it's getting very close to the cams.

Lift is coming over near the current nest tree; driver is alone so David may be consulting with someone.

Sue and other zoomers watching - only room for one cam in the new tree - if he leaves one in the old tree, which one can see the evergreen and the perches better?

He'll also check with Darlene.

Thanks for calling me Judy! Hoping I made the right decision. Thinking the W Cam has the better, clearest view of most of the perches our eagles use so would like to have the W Cam remain in the current nest tree. The E cam, with the double vision on a lot of our perches would then move to the Evergreen tree.

Just talked with David (PM me if you need his number) -

Myles wants to go up and look at the evergreen tree - he's concerned that it may not be strong enough (though that's also an issue with the current tree) and wants to see the conditions more closely.

If we go ahead with the new nest, the plan would be to leave the West cam in the current tree because it has the clearest view of the evergreen and the poles, and move the East cam over to the new tree.
