Ok, Here's the update.
First off, I know this has been a painful wait, and for that we apologize. The guys have been working with a series of technical challenges that don't seem to stop. Some are related to boxes going bad, and others to the high winds we have faced the past several weeks.
Yesterday, we worked all afternoon to get the cam started, and it didn't work. We were concerned that the camera had succumbed to the elements. This morning, the guys were at the tree and hooked a monitor into the cam cable and voila, they saw the female in the nest, very likely sitting on eggs.
They now have to do some additional work to make the microwave link work. If they succeed, the cam should be set and online. This still could take a few more days...
They will be back out there today working. If they do see the female up when the monitor is hooked in, they'll give us a report on how many eggs.
Kudos to Keith, John, and Mike for their perseverance on this problem. The technology used here is different from other cams that we look at and unfortunately has presented challenges that none of us wanted to have to tackle. We still need to keep our fingers crossed, we are not yet out of the woods.
