After a month's hiatus, here's an update.
We headed up in the tree in late August. We found that both cameras in the tree had been "cooked" by the close proximity lightning strike. We replace the new cam in the existing mechanical housing, and confirmed that wiring from the nest to the base of the tree was working. We plan on putting in a heavy duty surge protector to help prevent such catastrophic damage next big storm. Unfortunately, this area is prone to big lightning,, we have been plagued with this type of damage since we opened in 1997.
We still have some cabling to replace, and once that is done we'll be ready to start to next season of eagles.
Thanks for your patience.
