The audio is great also. Lots of bird calls, sounds of nature, even a train or two.

After the loss of the nest tree and the cam tree at Dale Hollow a couple of months before,

Bad news from Fulton, the Trio nest

viewtopic.php?p=369360#p369360
By Sandy_W

August 11, 2020 update. With very sad news from the Stewards, posting the following information about the Trio nest:

A derecho is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm that is associated with a fast-moving group of severe thunderstorms known as a mesoscale convective system. Derechos can cause hurricane-force winds, tornadoes, heavy rains, and flash floods.

This afternoon that storm brought winds that sheared the limbs supporting the TRIO NEST taking both the nest and the public cam down. That lonely limb left standing holds our research cam. We are grateful that the nest was finished for the season. We have been blessed to witness the Trio. They will build a new nest and we Stewards will continue to monitor their activity.

While this news came as a gut punch reality is the Eagles are flying free and no humans are injured. Our prayers tonight are for the many households that suffered the damages from DERECHO!
We will continue to follow the news from the Stewards. Please note The Trio eagles have had to rebuild before and they will again. The Stewards mentioned they will have to recover the public cam and hoping it is still functional but the 2021 observation season is doubtful. So very thankful this event occurred during the non-nesting season and the Trio eagles are flying.

my thoughts are with the Trio group.
We had a Derecho on May 8, 2009.
We lost power for 5 days, some people more than that.
Everything was shut down except Walgreens had a generator and so did one hotel.
Wings Crossed for everyone who was in the path of this storm.

A Bald Eagle attacked a drone and the drone fell into Lake Michigan?

:(
I hate to see this happen. Is a human feeding a juvenile eagle?
Not this lady obviously.
So the eagle associates people with food? :puzz:
Thanks to the rescue it was a good outcome for the woman and the eagle wasn't hurt.
Hope there are no more incidents.
Merci Philjo for the links.

There is no video, but if you search for "bald eagle and drone" you can read the news report.
The drone ended up in Lake Michican. ;)
Good job for the Eagle! :thumlft:

Well... why do I think that this juvie was captured for the worst (for him?)

I understand this poor lady was terrified, I hope she's OK but people need to understand they CANNOT approach wild animals, especially BE ! not mentioning feeding-baiting them is stupid as eagles might think people = food :no:

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.


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!

We Are Back!

We think people should now be able to log in again. If anyone is still having trouble, please let me know - [email protected] (or my personal email if you have it)

And we didn't have to reboot the forum - and we didn't lose any posts!


Big Thanks to David Hathaway!

Announcing Decorah and Decorah North Cam Shutdown

08-19-2020 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itTAMAuXi0U

Raptor Resource Project

The Decorah and Decorah North cams will shut down for maintenance at 5:00 PM CDT on Saturday, August 29. The chat mods for both cams will be holding special celebratory goodbye chats from 3 to 5pm. Come join us and relive your favorite moments at each nest! Many of you told us that our nests were a place of refuge and calm for you this year. We hope you know that you gave us strength, courage, and determination in the face of Covid-19 and so many other challenges. Thank you for watching, sharing, learning, and especially for caring!

If you are looking for something to watch after we shut down the Decorah and Decorah North cams, take a look at our Mississippi Flyway cams! As late summer turns to fall, it offers an excellent opportunity to see migrating birds and local wildlife! Our Flyway cam also offers a chat for anyone looking to learn and connect with kindred spirits.

Flyway cam: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/flyway-cam/

Look for both cams to come back some time in early October!
