Important Announcement!


David H. and the "Cam Cleaning Squad" will be attempting to clean the Delta2 cam today at 12:30 pm - weather permitting!


If the rain is too heavy and the tree is slippery, the cleaning will be postponed to a later date - hopefully in the next week or so! The date will be posted as soon as it is known.

The latest from David:


HI All Delta 2 Keeners; -- Just reviewed with Myles as a shower just started here after a few hours of 'dry'.

Myles is prepared to climb if the tree gets about an hour of drying out of the canopy.

The challenge is the ropes get very slippery.

We will probably go to the site as every area is different. ANd as we know Delta and WR get half the rain of downtown VR.

I will call Sharon and Jean from the site and ask then to forward to others our last minute decisions !

All we can do is 'give it a try"

Cam Cleaning at Delta2 Postponed Because of Rain!

Due to the wet and unsafe conditions at the nest tree, David and Myles have decided to postpone the cam cleaning until Monday, Sept 17, 10:00 am when they will try again. The weather is supposed to be better then and hopefully the conditions at the nest will improve enough to try again.

Thanks for trying, David and Myles!

Good Afternoon, a break in the rain on this windy day
2:44pm - red-breasted nuthatch visited the nest, collected a little something and left
2:56pm - a nuthatch and at least one black-chapped chickadee have been on and off the nest, picking at little bits (food?)
checked replay again, it's easy to miss action but did catch Douglas squirrel on the nest at 1:59pm - brief visit

Hi DD, :wave:
Thanks for zooming and posting on this blustery afternoon. I love seeing the cormorants here. We get a wonderful variety of visitors to the area. And it will be even better when the cams are cleaned!

5:45pm - done with preening, the cormorants fly off
and right away a glaucous-winged gull flies to the rock, as if it had been waiting
