The cam at French Creek is down - neither Ken nor I can log into it directly. There are quite a few power outages on Vancouver Island, but nothing in that general area.

It looks as if it froze at 1:37:42, and went black a few seconds later. I'm not sure what resources we have there to check it out, but there may be folks from the Save Estuary Land Society or Friends of French Creek who could check it out.

We'll post more when we have more information.

Thanks, Bill! Ken also noticed, and notified me, though I'm a bit slow posting.

Cam is back! Unfortunately no one is on the perch tree, though there were some visits earlier today.

Cam is focused on the water and the edge of the nest for the night.

The problem seems to be somewhat intermittent, Bill. The cam is not responding well at the moment - I tried moving it to the perch to see if it was light enough for that and it went black for a minute or so. I brought it back to the nest - and it took another minute to respond. I've logged out of the cam, but the signal is still not back to normal. I think there's an internet issue at the site - and hope it will be resolved in the morning.

This is what it should look like if the signal strength picks up enough to show it:

🤭This is what I'm getting at the moment. I can see the clock moving but can't begin to guess what it's saying🤭

It's better now, but I'm reluctant to try moving it. Maybe we'll see some squirrels....

Definitely possible - though we've been leaving the cam showing at least part of the nest most nights, and haven't seen any activity, so I'm guessing the owl has moved on. But maybe....

Thanks for starting our day here, nightowl! :bye 1:

The camera seemed to be working better when I tried logging in this morning, so I moved it to the perch tree for the day.

Beautiful light - and two eagles!

The one on top flew off. And then an adult arrived up top - not sure if it's the same one.
20210325_004.jpg

That one left - and it looks like a similar sized eagle arrived, so may be the same one back again.

As far as I can tell by quickly scrolling through the dvr, the one on the lower branch has been there the whole time since my earlier post.

I think there are three eagles in the perch tree - not one regular eagle on the right and one very tall eagle on the left!

It looks as if the wind we've been seeing on the mainland is reaching the island now. I'm going to bring the cam back to a view of the nest. Thanks to whatever bird that is for your guest appearance.

Thanks, Bill - I was just coming to report that I'd heard back from Ken.

I've moved the cam to the perch tree - but am happy to put it somewhere else if you can suggest a somewhere.
