Cam up.  Kudos to our tech Clayton who diagnosed the actual issue and got the needed part delivered this AM.

The guys are heading out this PM to try a temporary fix to get the cam back on.

Update:  They were out there working on it.  NO good... :( 

The guys will keep working

Monday PM

We were able to diagnose the problem.  The camera and power supply were undamaged (good thing).  The problem is in some of the communication gear that gets the signal to the Internet, some of these connections were cooked by the power surge.  We will order these parts immedeately and will get things rolling again as soon as we can.

I just got clearance from the Elkins  Ecological Services Field Office to allow our tech go to the nesting tree.  Hopefully he can get things resolved.

The power spike yesterday apparently zapped the communication link between the camera and the link to the Internet.  NCTC folks are working to diagnose and fix ASAP, while ensuring there is no impact on the birds.

Stand by, new thread.

There was a power outage at NCTC that has impacted the cam.  I am on leave but have been in contact with the tech folks.  As soon as they get clearance from the NCTC land manager to go within the nest exclusion zone they will be able to reset things.  Please bear with them; it will likely be tomorrow AM.

Contrary to my understanding, the cam does zoom, so Rob will be zooming in some for the upcoming anticipated hatching activities.

Well here it comes, a big snow event first one of this size in more than two years.  It will be the biggest test for our pair this winter.
