This thread is for Discussion, Observations, Screenshots & Videos solely related to actions/events/ occurrences at the White Rock nest.
When making your posts, please type the time first, then your observation of the activities. Although we tend to want to humanize our eagles, they are wild birds so please try to avoid the temptation to speak for them.

Screen captures are limited to three (3) per post and should be no more than 500 pixels wide. Please use the file tag (not the IMG tag) when attaching your captures. Also, make sure you save your captures in the JPEG format.
As a courtesy to viewers with slower internet connections, please limit the pictures in each post to no more than a total of 150,000 bytes. Please do not post animations (though it's fine to post a link to them). Please limit smilie/emoticons to three (3) per post. Also, some members have difficulty with moving smiley/emoticons so please limit those to one (1) per post (of the three (3). Please remember this thread is solely for observation/discussion regarding the events in and around the nest area.
Thank you for your cooperation!

Wonderful to see an eagle in the area = happy you caught that, Dduckies!

Unfortunately the maintenance team had been hoping to try again on the replacement of the South/Bluff cam, and cleaning/adjustment of the WA cam - but found an eagle in the south/artificial nest when they arrived, and didn't want to risk scaring what might be or become one of the resident eagles here, so they have chosen to not do that work at this point - and I have doubts about finding another time when we're sure enough that there's not an eagle around for it to happen this fall.

But there is some good news - Ken now has a working line for the WA cam, so that is streaming again (though not cleaned or adjusted). The embedded cam was going down a lot, and probably will be until Ken gets back and can reboot the Wowza - but it is back!

Good night, everyone!
