Hi everyone! Thanks for the reports today, and I'm hoping I'll be able to check in a bit more tomorrow. I forgot to mention that I rebooted South - hopefully it will continue to stream for a while.

And goodnight everyone!

Good morning, everyone!

I've rebooted South again - if it goes back down, I'll ask Ken if he can reboot the server - though North seems to be fine so I'm hoping the issue is just with the South cam. It doesn't look like a day when I'd expect a visit from the eagles - but who knows.

I also changed the stream settings on both cams so Stream 3 is the Mac-friendly stream. It does seem as if there's something I'm missing - when we had Stream 3 set up for Macs before, when a Mac-user tried to log in, the cams came up defaulted to Stream 1 and she couldn't change that - so I moved the Mac settings to Stream 1 - and then the cams defaulted to Stream 3 for her. This hasn't been an issue at Harrison Mills, which uses an older model of Vivotek cam, and I haven't found anything in the manual to help with this - the cam is supposed to work with Macs on Firefox. And I'm mentioning this on the off-chance that someone reading this thread has a suggestion. And I'll try to find some suggestions online - but have some other things to catch up with first.

Maybe I'm wrong about the weather keeping them away - just heard at least one eagle calling. Unfortunately not that close to the mics, and I didn't see anyone - but I think they are around. :)

And the rain may have stopped - hard to tell. North cam just switched to color at 8:06 am.

Added -
I moved the North cam to a wider view in the hopes of seeing one or both flying around; South is working for now (fingers crossed) so we can also get a close look if either of them come to the nest. This is the Nest Wide preset, then panned to the left a bit to show a couple of the tall trees where I'd think they might perch.

Thanks, Bev and Marg! I sent an email to Ken shortly after my last post, when the feed started to get choppy. I'll try a text message in a while - not near my phone at the moment.

I'm not going to try a fourth reboot unless there's an eagle in the nest - it's not helping for more than a few minutes, so I think waiting for Ken is the way to go for now.

Dinner time here as well. I saw a few crows(?) fly into the upper branches of the nest tree, and was briefly excited to see big wings approaching, until I saw there was no white head!

I'm going into the North cam briefly to move it back to a closer view of the nest - if any zoomers would like it further back, please feel free to change it.

Added - I'm out of the North cam.

I'll send Ken a text to let him know that something may need a reboot.

Thanks, gemini - if I try that view tomorrow, I'll move the nest further to the right so it's more visible in the thumbnails. I was watching most of the time it was in that position, and didn't see any eagles. But I heard at least one, so I'm hoping they're still around.

Ken just rebooted the Wowza server, and both embedded cams are streaming now.

And it's fine to move the cam, Bev, to wherever it works best for you to watch and scroll back. :thumlft:

Comparing the nest on the first and fifth of January. (click 2x for bigger)

1-1 and 1-5-2019.jpg

Aside from the lighting changing the appearance a bit there isn't a speck of difference in the placement of the individual pieces of straw! The feather has turned a bit but that would probably have been the wind.

Thanks gemini for the comparison views..


I am thinking if Res and Sur are taking a winter break like Mom and Dad Honeycomb use to do.. we probably won't see them until later this month or early February .. having said that Res and Sur did a lot of nest work earlier like Judy said ... so :luck:
