Good morning, everyone, and thanks for posting the weather, Bev.

8 am
I checked the dvr back to your post, Bev, and didn't see any activity.

When I first came to my computer this morning, I noticed that the North cam did not look as crisp and clear as it had yesterday - and I checked the resolution on my computer by hovering over the window and clicking the gear icon - and saw that my computer had set the resolution fairly low:
20200909_001.jpg

(I normally choose Auto because I don't need a sharp image while I'm working on other things, and my internet connection isn't really made for streaming 6-8 cams while updating my Facebook page. :mihihi: )


Once I switched to 720 pixels, I was back to a clear view.

I mention this because it's the first thing to check when the image isn't that clear - and I forget to do that from time to time. :%:

10:45 pm Went back to 9:32 am - no visits until 7:21 pm when this little fellow poked his head around the trunk before skittering on up the tree a few seconds later......

Only to return again at 7:38 pm on the other side of the nest and head back up the same tree trunk again! (at least the pixelating is good for something - you can see his path across the nest!)

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for your coverage here! I'm going to be busy with non-forum things for the next few days - will stop by when I can.

I forgot to post this picture from yesterday morning - our other squirrel friend stopped by:

I checked the dvr and did not see any visits. I'll send a message to Ken about the North cam.

Good afternoon everyone, and thanks for starting our day, nightowl. :bye 1:

5:22 pm
Here are a few pictures from the South cam - I think this is smoke, not fog.

20200912_003.jpg
20200912_004.jpg

I looked back quickly 12 hours to shortly before dawn, and did not see any visits - and don't really expect to see any, unless one of the eagles really prefers his/her salmon smoked.

Good night - and stay safe. :hug:

8:45 pm checked back to JudyB's post and there were no visits. I noticed the infra red light came on at 7:32 tonight - I know the days are getting shorter but I hope it is just the smoke turning it on that early!

Good morning, everyone, and thanks for posting the weather, Bev - sounds like a scary time for everyone in the northwest. :grhug:

11:20 am
I checked the dvr back 12 hours quickly and didn't see any visits - except this, which I actually got at 7:40 when I first came in to make a post but got distracted.

The cameras weren't quite in sync so the squirrel is not in the same place in the two shots.

North cam is choppy - I'll send a message to Ken.

G'morning all :)
I was scanning the "re-wind" and it looks like the smoke is traveling through in waves. i.e. Smokey, really smokey, smokey, not so smokey. Lather, rinse, repeat. 🤔
That's all I saw. ;)

7:50 pm Just checked back to my last post and no further visits.

Still smoky out there! Supposed to rain tonight so maybe that will clear the air a bit.

Good very early morning, and :bye 1: nightowl.

12:02 am
My computer had rebooted itself (installing software?) and when I brought up the cams I keep streaming overnight, the South embedded cam dvr is just going back 4 hours - and the North cam is offline. I tried to log into the cam directly and couldn't connect, so there is probably an issue at the site. I'll send a message to Ken in the morning.

5:59 am Just checked the South dvr and no night visitors. Also noticed that the North cam DVR (oops! meant infra red light) isn't working so went back to see what time it went off - it went off at 8:32 pm - must be when the North cam went down!

1:27 pm Just went to check the DVR - the North cam is still down and the South cam DVR only goes back to 12:44 pm - needless to say I didn't see any visitors!

The good news is it looks like the smoke is beginning to disipate a bit - although according to the weather forecast just now it is likely to get bad again.

11:46 pm Checked back to my last post and it sounds like it started to rain shortly after nine and ended a little after eleven. This should help to clear the air a bit. No change visitor wise!
