Linuxgw2, I too checked the rollback on both cams and only goes back to 1:37 pm on both but have been streaming since then. 3:07 pm logging to both cams for a look see. 3:17 pm logging off both cams as made quick trips around and didn't see any birds. It certainly will not be long before we get to see Ma and Trooper again. :rh:

Just a quick look around and didn't see any eagles but can really start to see the haze from forest fire smoke that is blowing into town.

7:00 am - this could be a bunch of large birds down at the bay but hard to tell for sure with the sun just coming up. I did hear a bunch of geese flying by so maybe that is what these are.

7:04 am - other than a little bird here and there flying around, I did not see any others....no eagles this morning.

I am now logged off the cams. Everyone have a great day!

1:57 pm logging into both cams for a quick look.
2:06 pm can see the trees turning colors and that means fall is really getting ready to pop with beautiful colors on the trees. Did not see any birds at all. And fall means we should see Ma or Trooper soon.

10:38am..........There was someone on the far right pole......think it was a hawk. Just as I was about to zoom in on it, it flew to the right. Maybe this is the same bird now on the tower eagles left pole.

10:43am..........That's about all around the area. It is fairly quiet, no sighting of any eagles yet.

Nice to see some sticks for Ma and Trooper to move around when they return from their migration.

Looked around and saw no birds of any kind but am seeing a lot of smoke. The worst forest fire smoke day so far this season, visibility is poor.

8:18.....Good morning all! Just to add to Sandy’s comments.......all that “fog” out there is actually smoke from the current wildfires south of us in the USA. The fires are ravaging the West coast from southern California all the way to the Canadian border. Stay safe our American friends! :grhug:

Good morning, everyone!

I took a quick look back to before dawn, and did not see any visits to the nest.

Stay safe, everyone. :grhug:

5:33 pm - Good Evening Delta 2! I am going to log into the cams for a look around.

5:46 pm - I was not able to see any birds out in Delta. Lots of smoke from the fires and it seems that there may be some rain in the area...seeing rain drops on the cam covers.

I am now off the cams.
