Eagle Cam Back Running

I am writing from the eaglecam site and I am very happy to report that the surge protector did its job and protected the equipment from the lightening strike. We are now back online!

Thank you all for your continued interest in this project. I will continue to be mostly in the field until August, but come September I will be back in the office and as always I depend upon your observations to help be understand the behavior of the eagles.

Webcam Updates

I am just back for a day and am heading back to the field in ten minutes. I have been working with my co-workers and volunteers to determine what is happening. I have discovered that the eaglecam was hit by lightening and is going to be offline for a while. I am going to make a trip to the site as soon as I can to see what can be done. If we are lucky it is as simple as the surge protector being shot, but there may be a lot of other problems as well. I will keep you up to date. I have been working on the ospreycam and it is back up and running and as I write this a bird is sitting near the nest.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to these projects.
