We have identified the source of the signal problems we've all seen this week. Our microwave signal is being blocked partially by some tree limbs that have leafed out really well, and that may have been impacted by the storms over the past week.
We've requested that the limbs be trimmed. Hopefully it will happen today.
Just got in and saw the long roll of comments. We all get frustrated when the live feed goes down, and the NCTC folks work hard to keep things going, amongst their other long list of responsibilities... I just spoke to the front desk clerk and the closed circuit feed at NCTC is working, so the eagle guests today can see the live cam on the monitor in the front lobby.
Another note, I live 40 miles from NCTC, so popping in is not an option. :>)
The DC TV station meteorologists are calling the storms that roared through this region yesterday the most widespread and vicious that they have ever seen. Tornado warnings were widespread, and huge areas of Northern Virginia and Maryland and parts of WV are without power. Where I live there is no power anywhere, despite little visible damage.
So, yesterday, as I was driving out about 4:00 pm, I did see our first fledgling, perched at the top of a sycamore about three hundred yards to the southeast of the the nest tree. Have not gotten any reports this AM, other than the second fledge occurring less than an hour ago.
