Nesting behavior and two new webcams
As one commenter speculated, it is possible that other birds are moving around and looking for new sites because they lost their nest in the storm. Charlie Todd of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife was telling me that he saw many nests that had been blow out of trees and it looked like many pairs of eagles around the state were affected by the storm.
I wanted to let you know that I am working on another webcam system on a new species! We have the equipment, and the location. Now we have to work on the Internet connection, installation, and equipment. If we don’t run into a problem of some sort, which is entirely possible, we should have a very exciting and dynamic pair of birds for you to watch within a couple of weeks, perhaps sooner.
Tomorrow, we will be installing the looncam, now with not one by two cameras. If all goes without a hitch we will have the camera online by the beginning on next week.
I should have an update on the fundraising campaign, latter today.
