Hello from Patrick! The cam is back up...

Hi all. My name is Patrick Keenan and I wanted to introduce myself. I will be assisting Wing with the eaglecam and am very excited about hearing your observations and comments. As you may know the autumn can be an exciting time for eagles. Some individuals disperse from there breeding sites to winter territories while others, especially those along the coast, remain loyal to their breeding area year-round. This could mean some exciting interactions and behaviorial observations as indivuals move south and to the coast for the winter. Our cam is focused on some prime real estate (from an eagle's perspective) so let's keep watch.

Welcome Patrick!!
Today was a beautiful sunny afternoon on the nest - all that was missing was an eagle. Looking forward to learning from you as we have from Wing; hope we hear from you often.

Welcome aboard Patrick...
May you find our pair of eagles, affectionately known as Mom and Dad, as exciting as we do....
I know it is a bit early to be saying this, But here is to a great season for Mom and Dad to raise a baby....Maybe two... :)

Welcome Patrick and good luck with all the eagle research. I am a member of a wonderful forum, called the Maine Bald Eagle Cam Discussion Forum which began with a group of people mostly interested in the Maine Eagle nest, but which has grown over the past couple of years and which now covers many wildlife webcams.

However, the Maine Eagle cam and nest are our most favoured and therefore there is a very loyal and avid group of people observing the nest almost 24/7 from different parts of the world - several from UK and Europe and many from USA and Canada. We are trying to keep a clear observation record, if that is of any interest to you.

We all suffer withdrawals when the cam goes off, but a quick call to Theresa in the office seems to get it back up and running again. I do hope you are able to ensure that it is reliable when there is eagle activity and that maybe you'll stop by some time and read the forum, perhaps join and even post in it occasionally. We would love to know more about BRI and the things you are achieving.

Thanks so much for the best Eagle cam in the world.

Hello Patrick......and welcome to our 'eagle community'.

I'm going on my fourth season of watching this wonderful pair and so much look forward to it. After all the sadness and disappointment of the last two years, I have a good feeling that this will be a successful one.

It sounds as though you are just as excited as all of us are. :o)

We want to welcome you Patrick and say thanks to you and Wing and all the rest at BRI who do so much for our eagles and other birds. You will find that these eagles have quite a large and devoted fan club. There are lots of eagle cams out there but this is the most beautiful one by far and I think that you will find that there is someone watching pretty much every minute during the day. I even put it on in the evening and listen to it, sometimes even hearing one late at night.

Again, we extend a very warm welcome and hope that you will post an occasional update, would be much appreciated.

I cannot get the live cam to work. Haven't been able to access it for months. I wonder what the problem might be.

Welcome Patrick....

It will be nice having another one keeping an eye on the great eagles and tending to the cam.

May the seasons ahead be successful ones.

Welcome Patrick Keenan, and thank you for starting a new thread for September and the introduction.

What is your area at BRI? Is there any background online, or any more information on your past areas with eagles etc?

We're all ears and excitedly awaiting the next breading season for Ma and PA!!

Tell us more! How many nests have been noted in the Hancock area and how productive have they been?

We know everyone is busy up there, however, it's always good to know if the species is flourishing.

For 2 years we've been on pins and needles over this magnificant couple - it's very difficult to let go. Similar to a soap opear (which I do NOT watch).

Hi Patrick!
It's exciting that you will be assisting Wing with the eaglecam.
There is always someone watching this cam, even at night. So there are many events that are seen or heard that happen at this nest. You can get lots of information from us.
When the cam goes down (as it did this past weekend and Tuesday afternoon), you will probably hear the ohhhhs and darns from all of us disappointed eaglecam nest watchers. We are loud when we are unable to view.
Hopefully, with you assisting all the busy people at Bri, who are a great group, you might observe the live cam is not working and be able to hit the magic switch sooner and we won't have to keep bugging everyone there. We certainly appreciate the fact that it is on all year long and miss it dearly when it goes down. Maybe you might be able to update this blog more as there are many of us who would love to read the posted observations daily or at least weekly.
It is the best one there is. The sights and sounds that we get at this sight can compare to no other....
Early Tuesday morning we saw one of or beautiful pair visiting the nest, what a great sight to see. It's always a thrill no matter how long it stays.
And again I want to thank everyone there for all their hard work and I look forward to sharing an exciting and eventful year with everyone.

Thank YOu Patrick, for helping Wing out with the comments and observations. We can't wait until the eagles are back and getting ready to nest next spring.

Glad you are helping out.

I am unable to get the live feed for the nest camera. I haven't been able to see it all summer. I see that it did apparently have problems for awhile, but supposedly is back up. I am most distressed that I can't access it!
Wonder what could be wrong....
