Good Afternoon Delta 2! The other day when we had cam maintenance I forgot to record but remembered the next day and was able to capture some of the cam maintenance starting around 6 pm on 8/20 (unfortunately the large branch removals were prior to this time so are not included). The videos are below. Because I wanted to include as much as possible the recordings were quite long so I separated them into three recordings. Even with that the first two videos were too long so I sped them up a bit. Unfortunately this causes any speaking by our climber, Stan, to be distorted so please don’t laugh too hard when you hear him talk.

Good morning, Sue. Thanks for the cam maintenance videos and for taking a look around! And to add, looks like we can see forever! Great views.

Hi Sandy! You are welcome. Yes, it is amazing how far it seems we can look. Can see the top of that right of center pole like it's right in front of us. Can't wait to be able to see Ma and Trooper out there.

Took a look around and I did see some large birds down by the water and they flew off but it's so windy out there it was hard to follow them to see where they went to.

Cams worked well, but I can see that there are already spots on the nice new cam covers. Hoping some rain will take those off.

7:47 am - I am now off the cams.

Some s'caps of the large birds down at the water. I was watching the one on the ground in the middle and these other four birds flew by

The two on the left kept flying to the left and out of view

The other two followed them

4:13 pm - I am logging into the W Cam to see if the sound is working on the zoomer cam....currently it is not working on the embedded cam.
4:18 pm - I am off the W Cam....the sound is working on the zoomer cam so it's just a problem on the embedded cam. Will try to re-boot that cam once I find the info to do so.

4:34 pm - that's odd....the sound just cam back on the W Embedded cam. Not sure if someone else just re-booted the cam but if so, Thanks!

All is good now Jean, thanks! No need to re-boot the E Cam as that seems to be okay.

8:19pm...Here is that odd looking thing lying in the nest.....maybe a piece of bark, rather than a leaf. That would make sense anyway because of the recent nest maintenance and trimming.

Very quiet and calm tonight.........no birds, except for one light colored one I saw flying near the church cross.

9:12 am - I can't tell if these are large birds in the trees beyond the first tower....will keeping an eye on them but not seeing movement so I will pan around the rest of the area and come back in a bit to check again.
2019-08-28 12_12_38-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg

9:43 am - looked around with the E Cam and saw some large birds down by the water...probably geese, but can't tell for sure. Went back to the first tower and those distant trees and those blobs that were in the trees are still there. They may be part of the tree or maybe they could be some large birds but since they didn't fly off it's hard to confirm.
2019-08-28 12_43_45-Greenshot_LI_Moment.jpg
Just waiting for that first large bird to surprise us on the nest tree....usually we see hawks and falcons before the eagles come back so maybe in a couple weeks they will show up. For now...empty nest. The eagles will be another month, most likely.

9:46 am - I am now off the cams. Everyone have a great day!

Hancock Here: D2 Thanks


Hi All: and I mean all.

What a wonderful afternoon and evening getting the D2 nest cam bowl cleaned, several annoying twigs removed, the huge dead limbs removed, and all the details requested attended to. First, a great thanks for Stan Pennors of Cambium Tree Solutions, who did an incredible job in removing all the dangerous dead limbs that overhung the nest, changed the two very dirty CAM bowls, and answered directly the many phone calls from you mods to make sure the nest CAMS are performing to capacity.

And then of course there are you, our mods, who knew each and every blemish that disrupted viewing and spoke directly with Stan up the tree to make sure he removed every blemish. So wonderful!

This tree I thought was on its last legs. Stan, with many years of pruning as background, has given me a good bunch of suggestions of possibly extending the nest tree's life 4 or 5 years.

Again, thanks to all.

David

Good Evening Delta 2 and special hello to David Hancock and the great news about the nest tree here. Earlier today I had checked in on the rollback and had seen some movement on the nest. We had quite a few little birdies visiting and doing some cleanup for Ma and Trooper before they arrive. Was so great to see as I’ve been checking but hadn’t seen anyone visit in quite a while. Here are a few s’caps of the visitors from this morning between 9 am and a little after 10 am.

Thanks, David, and good news about the nest tree.
