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.

Mits Answer to your question
I just emailed Jason on beakspeak.com to check out Maine & add it on their page of cams. He did add FL just the other day after the email.
It is easy to use beakspeak page if someone doesn't want to bookmark everything.

eagle-eyed sharon said...

When I clicked on the eagle cam, it gives me the July 28 pic we saw for a little while. It is updating every 30 seconds with the same pic. I thought that was pretty cool. Wonder if that is still the format we will have?

Mits said...

THANK YOU, STEVEN, JO AND SHARON!! GETTING EXCITED HERE!!!

Hi Folks,

We have one last technical hurdle to go to get things online. They just told me they expect to solve the issue tomorrow.

Mits said...

THANK YOU, STEVEN, FOR KEEPING US INFORMED...GOOD LUCK!

We will all try to be very patient - just like our little eaglets were as they waited to be fed!

Mits said...

Been quiet out in KENT lately.

Anonymous said...

Was there any signs of the FL eagles today?

Mits said...

Yes, Vicky, they came in this afternoon at sunset, and, Sharon saw them this a.m.

Anonymous said...

Do they think we have eggs in FL?

Mits said...

If they had eggs, someone would be there all the time...Lynda from FLA, was suspecting some laying yesterday, but, guess not, because they were gone most of today.

Mits said...

Getting dark at KENT.

Thank you Dr. Mits! Our Bamboon specialist and eagle reporter!

Kent has been quiet lately! Except for George!

Mits said...

Yeah, good old George are as my sister calls him, "eagle meat".

He's certainly flirting with danger!

Anonymous said...

So has everyone gone to bed early so they can wake up early and be first to see the cam????

Anonymous said...

Aww I love those 3 little eaglet heads How very cute is that? We all know their names too RIGHT Forever yes!!!!

Just getting home. very tired and actually quite hungry. Just wanted to stop by and say Hi, and share the excitement of the very very soon unveiling of our new cam, and that wonderful new web page that gets us there. Hope all is well for everyone. Will check back to say Good night in a while. Time Off for me now for a couple of hours.

Anonymous said...

LOl. Eagle meat. Tell your sister that's a good one, Mits!

Anonymous said...

Didn't mean to be such a quiet lurker. I did see the FL eagles' two white heads in the nest before dark. That nest is really deep. I don't know where the Kent couple has been.
I'm thinking that it may be late in the day before the cam is up if they need to address a tech problem. Mits, you have training and by the time you get home things may be up and rolling.

Also, the sloth bears, only know their names and the clouded leopards, haven't a clue except they are cute.

This is not the time of evening that I usually say this, but it has been a long day & you know who wants to get up earlier then she normally does.

Good Night & Sweet dreams of the

Good Morning Suzanne

PUT THE TREE UP!


Working on government property Suzanne may have a tough time calling it a Christmas tree. Maybe she could say it is just a symbol of the environment!
Why should she need to say anything???
Merry Christmas & a Happy Healthy New Year America

Well, good grief, I am not a religious person but even I understand that a Christmas tree is a Christmas tree, and I have not been making evergreen circles all day, but Christmas wreaths, and I'm all for political correctness, but sometimes it can get carried away... and so in closing I would just like to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and to all a good nite!!!

Nilla said...

HiYa Folks, was released from hospitol around 9 pm tuesday night. Doctors can not figure out what is bringing on this chest pain and after having more testing and another stress test each was abnormal and Dr Hardy felt another heart cath was to be done, so i had that around 2:30pm tuesday afer noon. Couple more blockages where found but only at about 45-55 % so no stenta put in. They decided to try a new medicine Imdur to dialate the vessels ( it is much like Nitro) I also must take Nitro now ...And because of all the meds new drug for stomach called Protonix... I am feeling fine right now except for a headache which this new meds gives me.... I did read over the blogs and seen many more are going thru some illness also,,, Big hugs n Prayers to you all...... I can not go back to work for awhile so here i will be watching n waiting for the nest camera to start!!! Norma i told Mits on the phone the other night i was coming up to your house to get your comp fixed for you.. But she said NOT before you come and fix mine...lol and i gota stay in tight with Mits cause she is my ticket to Tai Shan....LMAO Just kiddin right now i could not fight my way out of paper bag so weak...Ok i better go get my leg up dont need it to start to hemmorage... Love You All, Nilla

Suzanne said...

Good morning, Eagle World. Thanks for the info from yesterday, Steven! Can't wait, have it up and waiting for you guys to turn it on. I'm even enjoying the psychadelic lines all over the pic, missed them too, (if you can believe I said that)! Good grief, I'm ready to watch Liberty and Belle.

VERY cold out this morning, 19° at my house, warmed up to 23 here. Heat wave! Had to scrape my windows, so it's not as dry.

Have to do mail and some things, will go back and read the blogs to see what I missed. DID read Steven's note, of course!

All have a great eagle day. I'm sure you will when our cam comes up!

Eyes to the sky, see the raptors fly!

Suzanne said...

I forgot, Happy St Nicholas Tag (Day)!

Suzanne said...

Read the blogs, yup, CHRISTMAS tree is going up in my cube! Gonna have to tell 'em if they don't like it, don't come back till after the season! Well, in a nice way, of course.

Good to see you made it Nilla! Prayers for your health improving!

MERRY CHRISTMAS Eaglet Momsters, CAM COMES ON TODAY. Hope it gets on while I'm still here so I can see it too! (Yes, Mits, I know, if I hooked up my bloody PC up at home I could see it from there.)

Vicky, I like your tree!

MemaJo, you up yet? It is still a tad early!

Suzanne said...

I like the view of our new cam, you can see the pic and the eagle eye is watching you while you watch the cam. How cool is that!

Anonymous said...

BBrrrrrrr.... it's cold out there this morning, beautiful moon hiding behind the clouds. Good morning Suzanne! Sitting here doing some Christmas shopping from my chair( my favorite way to shop) Have to make some deliveries later this morning, will have to see if cam is on when I get back. Wake up JO!!, today is the day.

Suzanne said...

Morning, Megan! Yup, very cold out there, but a bright moon, and lots and lots of stars. Can't see them down here, too much ambient light.

Hope the cam comes up this morning! Can't wait. You'll probably see it when you get back. Hope so!

Suzanne said...

They'res an eagle sitting in the dark in BW... can see the head and feet and body outline. Cam is still not 100%, so they haven't gotten their video replaced yet, but it is updating occassionally.

Suzanne said...

Eagle all gone in BW. Daylight is coming.

Mits said...

GODD MORNING...EAGLE IN MAINE.

Suzanne said...

Goodness, must be walking the dogs in Kent, spotlight is on.

Suzanne said...

Eagle just arrived back in BW. Cam is updating.

Suzanne said...

Well, that was quick. One refresh there, next refresh gone.

Suzanne said...

Eagle back with a bird, squaking at the cam, awesome pic!

Suzanne said...

Both there!

Suzanne said...

Good morning, Mits! 2 eagles in BW, one eating breakfast. (A bird, which I don't like, but guess that's nature.)

Mits said...

YES, HAPPY ST. NICHOLAS DAY EVERYONE, AND HAPPY EAGLE DAY TOO. Glad to see Nilla out of hospital,,prayers and ((((HUGS)))) to you my friend, if I could hug Tai-Shan for you today I would. Eagle still up in Maine, eating. Suz, you go girl...deck those halls, with CRISTMAS SPIRIT Megan, glad to see you are doing some CHRISTMAS shopping. I'll be in and out this a.m., doing things before I have to leave, but all in all have a great day my eagle buddies!

Hey Mits, thanks for posting that web site for soldiers the other day, really a great project. It is anysoldier.com check it out everyone. Did you see the article in the Post the other day about the man who donates wreaths to Arlington. It was interesting. Can't find what I am looking for online, will be forced to go into a store today. AAAhhhh- Christmas shoppers can be scary...

Your welcome, MEGAN it is a good site. I saw you mention the article the other day and forgot to look at it, maybe I can still look it up on-line. I would love to help them out on the 14th or at least help out at the cemetary my in-laws are buried, but my MAGGIE is having an MRI that day and I will be up in Baltimore.

Wow, morning everybody. Lots of people up this morning. But where is MemaJo, she was gonna get up early?

There have been 2 eagles in and out of the osprey nest in BW. Cam is refreshing on and off.

Mits said...

VICKY not exactly sure about the MRI for MAGGIE, has something to do with her optic nerve being small and it might give them a clearer pic of the extent of her Downs Syndrome??? Who knows, only God and He's not talking???

Eagle still in MAINE.

Good morning my fellow eager eagle watchers. Second eagle just flew into Maine nest. Beautiful. Other one just flew off. I hope everybody has a wonderful day!

Eagle in Maine has finished breakfast and just took off and I can hear him squawking as he flies away..too cool.

What shows on your screen when you click on our Eagle Cam? Just curious if we are all seeing the same thing.

Suzanne said...

Normabyrd, I've always been a morning person, but with this job, I'm kinda carrying that to extremes! But I sorta totally run out of steam late afternoon, early evening. But that's what couches and TVs were made for... best sleeping pill in the world!

Cam still not up yet, and the BW cam is still hiccupping. Maybe we should scare it and it'll stop! Still dark in Kent.

Merry Christmas and Merry Eagle Day to all and to all a Good morning, and thank you Steve. Sharon you need to let me know how you are feeling these days. I haven't heard from you. I wish I could have been at the concert. Could we get pictures of my nephew drummer boy some how.I have been too busy, but not too busy to pray for all my Eagle buddies. Vickie, I love the tree. Merry Christmas to you Floral Girl, and I love the wreath. Hi Mits, Glo, and Mema Jo. Nillabean, I have been praying for you daily. Suzanne, don't let the government work you too hard. They are slave drivers, you know. Put up a big big tree. Mits, we need a new picture up of our Maggie. I bet she has grown so much. My prayers are still with you all. You are all my heart's darlings. I have gotten attached to George, sure hope he doesn't end up as "Eagle Bait" is that what your sister called him? As my daddy used to say, "I disremember what she said". I sure miss that old dear. Daddy died on Thanksgiving Day in 1997, and Thanksgiving will never be the same. Do any of you think holidays are sad? When I was young wife and mother and had my parents holidays were wonderful, now DH and I are the granmother and granfather. Changes things. Have a good one ALL of you. Hope I haven't left anyone out on blog right now. God Bless. . . . our little Eagle family where ever thay are. donna
