First snow of the season.  We are working right now with the crane.   More soon.


update:  The cam is being mounted now.  The difference in quality is extraordinary.



Update 2
Many thanks to John, Keith, Karin, Clayton, Rob, Doug, Ryan and Nu for their efforts today. 

Monday

Just back from DC.  Here's the scoop on today's activities.

Our tree folks came out this morning, and after some observation and long discussion, it was decided that the tree was not safe enough for our climber to get up into the nest.  Our nesting tree is slowly deteriorating, and a number of the limbs that support the nest are dying or dead. 

This does not mean that getting our guy into the nest would have caused something catastrophic to happen, but it did mean that we were concerned enough about his safety that we could allow the work to happen today.

Our next step is to consider some alternatives, and we have targeted this Friday as the next day we can attempt to get the new cam in place. 

Will keep you posted.

Sitting in the Charleston SC airport after meetings this week.

Here's an update on the cam progress:  We purchased a very nice high definition cam that will greatly improve the video coming from the nest.  This cam did not have audio, so we needed to devise a way to include audio, as well as a better mount.  In addition, there are more complicated networking issues related to the new cam, and these issues needed to be solved, including purchasing some additional equipment. 

All said, John, Rob, Ryan, and others have been working hard to make sure the system works well before we go up in the nest.  Will let you know when we're ready to go, I hope very soon.

New thread.  Back from NH. 

We will be doing some major maintenance on our systems this week. 

The cam sound will likely be affected by this work most of the week.

We were on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway the other week, and had a great time.  Here's a shot taken by my daughter as we head downriver from Long Lake Dam Campsite.
