Hello Spring!

Our Surrey Reserve eaglets are going to be featured on CBC's Hello Spring project debuting today - https://www.cbc.ca/life/hellospring

I don't know where our eaglets will be popping up in their rotation of things about spring - but have learned that our Surrey South eagle cam will be live this afternoon on the CBC Docs Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/cbcdocs/ starting at 2 pm pacific/5 pm eastern - so it's live now.

We are thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce more people to the wonderful eagles of British Columbia - and to the Surrey Reserve, a tract of trees set aside for the eagles and other wildlife while land around it was being developed. This is the second year we've been watching these eagles, and they appear to be getting along just fine with their many human neighbors.

Direct link to the cams is https://hancockwildlife.org/surrey-reserve-cams/

Our thread with lots of pictures and videos is viewtopic.php?f=114&t=407&start=2700#p330534


Please join us there - and check out the other interesting topics on CBC's Hello Spring page!

WANTED!

Live Stream Video Editors - to make short WEB mountable Videos.

Would you like to assist in telling the stories of our eagles?


Volunteers are the heart of HWF -- but I have never asked for people to assist in editing short video presentations. These could be 1 to 5 minutes long -- some longer! The person would need a video editing program but not need to have huge experience BUT have a willingness to participate. I have been accumulating short stories of trapping and banding eagles, attending eagle releases, looking at various specialty eagle challenges at each Nest for many many years. Once we got into broadcasting Live Streaming CAMS and attracting many wonderful photographers I felt I did not need to present my interpretations as we had lots of others. Notable, Christian Sasse has become a key contributor.

Christian and many of the other very accomplished photographers have repeatedly offered to contribute any of their materials to our Foundation stories. So the material available is quite extraordinary and it is very likely that we could produce a whole series of short videos that helped tell the wonderful story of eagles.

What I need is one or more people with a bit of time and an interest in editing these files of videos and stills into short stories. I have been writing short captions to lead off or at least give guidance to the editor. I could also do voice over if necessary. These item would be mounted on HWF News, Eagle Info, Live Tracking etc. They could also be key in bringing the story of eagle biology to the public. I have finally got down, with the ‘stay at home restrictions of late’ to filing all my 22 years productivity data to my Data Base and to reviewing and filing in hundreds of sub-files, many eagle stories that with the additions of Christian’s and other’s files should give our eagles another boost.

It would be wonderful if someone lived close but this is certainly not essential as I can mount each subject file on the Cloud and the editor work from there. Do I hear anyone wanting to give this a try?
Please call me directly and we can discuss: [email protected] or call me 604 761-1025

We Are Having Issues with the Forum

People who are signed in can post - but those who aren't logged in are getting error messages when they try to sign in.

It is not you or your internet provider - it's a forum issue.

Our tech person is working on this. We will probably have to bring the forum offline at least once as he's resetting things - and worst case scenario, we may need to revert to a backup that's 24-48 hours old, losing our posts for the last day or two. We hope it won't come to that, but if the server crash that took the forum down briefly yesterday damaged files, that may be necessary.


I haven't posted there yet - but if I get locked out or the forum goes down, I'll be posting updates on our backup forum - http://www.wildlifecamwatch.com/index.php under Welcome & HWF Updates and will also post updates on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Hancock-Wildli ... =bookmarks

And we didn't have to reboot the forum - and we didn't lose any posts!

To be posted on Surrey Reserve and Delta initially, adding White Rock and Harrison Mills if/when they have eggs.

Posting April 7, 6:15 am at Surrey Reserve and Delta 2 - comments or suggestions still welcome!

Help Wanted

We are looking for people who might be interested in putting together a set of screenshots from each day (or every couple of days) from each of our HWF nests to create a visual growth chart, which we could feature on our website to assist other researchers.

To quote Myles Lamont who suggested this, "It would be great if there was a standard pose or two (laying down vs sitting up) for every couple of days that could be collected throughout the season across each nest site. Would be very good to know if there is much variation between pairs in the region."

I'm not sure what the best way to do this is - does anyone have suggestions?

I'm thinking high res full screen shots would provide the most flexibility - but know that's not always possible.

Thoughts?

And more importantly - any volunteers?

Hi everyone!

We are getting reports that people are getting this error message some of the time when they try to post:

Image

Our tech person David Hathaway has tried something he thought would work as a temporary fix, but I'm getting reports that people are still having issues.

If this is happening to you, please post on our "Report Cams Down and Forum Errors" thread - viewtopic.php?f=66&p=475151#p475118 - and please feel free to read the posts there for more info.

If you have any suggestions or anything that can help us find a pattern as to why sometimes things post when you click submit, and sometimes you get the message - and I think sometimes people have gotten the message but their post actually is there when they log back in? - anyway, suggestions and reports are welcome on the Cams Down thread.

I am posting this on a few of the more active threads so people will know it's a forum issue and not a problem with their computer - and maybe someone has a solution.

Note to TAs - it's fine to delete this after a few days or once it's resolved, and also fine to share it to other threads if you hear of someone having an issue.

Thanks!
