Cams are still down for me and I have reported this all on the tech thread. I can't stand around and wait for them to come back so I guess I am officially off the cams now.

2:35 pm - we still have Dusk (I am assuming) on the branch. He changed from one branch to the other as looks like maybe seeking shade.

Sue, I will keep the cam up and if Dusk moves will log in to change positions.

OK I am going to try the cams for a little bit as can't stay long.
2:47 pm logging into both cams.

3:08 pm - adult eagle at the far right pole and first tower. The eagle at the first tower looks like it is doing some sort of dance by flapping the wings and moving back and forth on the top of the tower.

3;29pm............Hi Sandy..........I can take the cams if you need a break. But I'm expecting a phone call too so may have to drop the cams quickly if that happens.
