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.[/size]

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


Please let other folks know - I woke up to a lot of emails and won't get back to everyone right away. Thanks!

G'morning all :)

Liberty posted a video of the 2 PM(Sidney time) feeding on our 8/23/20. It's a long one, almost 23 minutes, but I think worth the time if you have it.
But, what do I know? ;)

G'morning all :)
Yer welcome Duckie :) And anybody else that watching.
As long as I'm not overdoing it, but they're at that silly stage. And so far bonking has been at a minimum.

About 7:44 AM PDT 8/25/20 the parents were startled by a BooBook owl in pursuit of what the locals say is a possum.

Another cute moment by the siblings.
I'm not sure what that is. Maybe it's a pellet?

There was very little food delivered yesterday, for whatever reason. So...
Like Audrey in "Little Shop of Horrors", # 26 cries, "Feed Meeee!"

OUTAGE - Friday 4th September, 10pm. At approximately 9pm this evening we lost connectivity to the Discovery Centre (Disco) where we run our broadcast from. Unfortunately we are unable to determine if this is a local power issue or ISP related. We will likely remain off the air until tomorrow morning."

What's left of it. 😉
You're welcome 👍
The little'ns were eating like hobbits, like 16 times a day. Now they eat fewer times a day and like you said, the first meal comes later and later. And they might not get a second meal. :chin:

26 has had mobility issues since hatch, and whilst it is being monitored, there is no point speculating about the cause or potential outcomes. An examination may shed further light on the situation but as we all know, whilst ever the chicks are on the nest, there is a non intervention policy in place. Worrying does not help or change anything. Thx to Lib for the confirmation.

At this point, I would say 7-9 days difference in feather growth, not concerned

15:20pm and on wards for over an hour, something had Lady in full protective mode and covered the chicks this afternoon calling out most of the time. We never saw what the issue was though there was much speculation . :w00t:

(Our Thursday)
"Breakfast and DawnSong"
The title says it all. However, I love how Lady always walks up to Dad and says,"Gimme' that food! This is Mom work." The Bald Eagle nests that I've watched have all had Dads that were eager to feed the young.
Feeding continues for a little while but I stopped recording after DawnSong.

*I don't know what it is with YouTube. I upload a 720p video and they sometime play it at 720p, sometimes it's 480p and sometimes it's 240p. I don't know.
