Too darn warm for Christmas thread.

Eagle at the Osprey Nest

Everybody talks about the eagle in the osprey nest at Blackwater NWR, thought I'd take a look. You're right--there it is!

Friday Update

I checked with the folks this AM and they told me they were headed out to work on our problems. I just got back in the office and see that the cam is still not up to par. I'm investigating further...


The cam is now live, but they are still working on the static problem. This all has to do with the microwave link.

On a brighter note, the live cam is now online full time. Once we get the static fixed we'll be happy.

Thursday 14 December

Tech update: Sorry for the continued glitches. The problem is in our production building control room. We're meeting with folks here at 2:00 to get to the bottom of this.

Also, it looks like we will be activating the live feed in short order, not in January as we said earlier.

hang in there. it's so warm here today, and the forecast is for continued 60 degree days--our eagles are probably out soaring in the warm air anyways.

Friday Update

Here's an update on the cams. Good news and less than good news.

First the good--the transition work is complete and the still cam is online.

now the less than good--the video feed was on yesterday. That was only a test. As I mentioned earlier, the video feed will start full time after the first of the year. Sorry. I got pretty excited too when the cam was up yesterday.

thanks for your continued comments of support. We really appreciate it.

Friday 8 December

A little snow last night.

On the live link, click here. This will give you the realplayer link. Once it's downloaded on your desktop, doubleclick on it and that will open the live feed link. If any of this info changes I'll get it out to you folks ASAP.

As I write this at 8:48 am, the feed is down.

The locked up still cam shot is being dealt with in Denver!

Also, the live feed is up. Access the realplayer file through the link here on this blog. The link will be put up on the eaglecam webpage soon.

We're Up and Running

update: We still have some cleanup work to do on webpage text, and on our connections. The site is currently running through Denver. We will make the transition to Wheeling tomorrow.

None of us can believe that an eagle was in the nest when we finally went live.

Up and running, almost

By now you've probably seen the new web page for the cam. Note-- to actually get to the cam it's one more click as we are hosting the cam offiste to preserve our bandwidth.

Picture still is not quite right, but the guys are working on it.

Thanks to our contracting and technical folks for making this happen so quick (by our standards here at least).

more soon.
