New thread.

And my very best holiday wishes to all of you out there in eagle land.  We have been testing the live cam and it is getting close.  Our new partner is The Outdoor Channel.  No link for the cam yet, but hopefully soon.


Also, remember to check out my Friend Pete's canoe blog and cam,  he's working hard all alone today.

Back from seven days off the grid in the North Maine Woods. No computers, only the river, moose, lots of bald eagles, and the wild.

New thread.

We had our resident eagle expert take a look at the young eagle after we got calls about its unusual posture while lying down. After watching the bird, Joe thinks that it is ok. he suggests that if the bird is "pooping," it's likely healthy, so keep an eye.

I am heading out for northern Maine tomorrow for a week on the Allagash River. I'll preset some daily threads for the period that I am gone.

Wednesday #3


New live video is up here.

Our thanks to My Outdoor TV, and the NCTC tech folks.

Spread the word!

Wednesday Part 2


For a few weeks now we have been working with a FWS partner, My Outdoor TV, to figure out a way to get our eagle cam video out to more folks, with smooth video and sound. My Outdoor TV is a fantastic website that is filled with video programming for folks interested in a variety of outdoor activities, soon to include the NCTC Eagle Cam.

This should solve the shaky video and lack of audio caused by the tight bandwidth.

We will be changing the link as soon as testing is completed. The only difference in what you'll see, besides smooth video and audio, is that you will see the video on a My Outdoor TV site, which includes some ads and a variety of other links. It's a really cool site, and we really appreciate their interest in working with us.

More soon.
