Aluma Systems Steps Up With A Scafold for Eagle Point

Chehalis River + Eagle Point

Aluma Systems' crew assembling the scaffold they have donated to allow us to mount cameras and watch the eagles feasting on salmonOn September 20 this year (2009) one of Aluma Systems' scaffold crews came out to the Sandpiper Golf Course on the banks of the Chehalis Estuary about 65 miles from Vancouver, BC. Scott Baird, the project manager, brought the crew and all the pieces needed to assemble a 10'x10' by about 20' high scaffold for us to use to hold our cameras out on the flats to watch the eagles eating the dead salmon that will spawn over the next few months. We needed something tall and steady and waterproof - the water level can come up several feet after a heavy rain.

The Sandpiper has a grass and gravel air strip that runs along the river edge. While we were there a local aerobatic team came for lunch and prior to landing gave us all a great show - including smoke-on!

As the planes pealed off to land we realized that they were going to be landing literally within feet of where we had set up the scaffold - and again we were treated to quite a show as the five planes each came in for a landing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The crew continued to work and finally had the skeleton built. At that point we called in the helicopter. The scaffold and each of the other loads had to fit within the helicopter's maximum weight load, so the final assembly including the addition of a full floor at the 15' level and a plywood surround to protect the equipment had to be done out on the flats at the final site.

Just before the helicopter arrived, the aerobatic team, having finished their lunch at Rowena's Inn on the River and started taking off, again right in front of us!.

No sooner had they all taken off than the helicopter arrived and proceeded to pick up the tower and take it to its place out on the Chehalis flats.

The crew went along and took the rest of the materials.

While the crew were busy finishing up the tower the helicopter ranged about and picked up some stumps and other "interesting" things that David Hancock thought might entice the eagles to spend time around our new tower.

As they were doing this, yours truly had to console myself with going up to Eagle Point to take some pictures of the work out on the flats and some of the birds around that area. Ah well, my time would come when we finally got to put the cameras and other equipment out at the site.

Next step - readying the equipment and getting it all "burned in" in David's ample back yard.

I spent several enjoyable days the

re setting things up and testing - and trying to keep the baby sandhill crane from picking at the wires and causing problems. 

Thank you Aluma Systems!

The scaffold crews have really done a good job. in order to watch the eagle,eating the dead salmon, they have created the skeleton built with live cameras. it will really help the people who are into bird watching to have a closer view of the eagle and it's movements. Good effort. Regards. www.educationalstar.com

Wild life photography is indeed a difficult task, photographers have to spend many hours to take a single shot. From the post it is clear that how challenging it is to put the cameras and the other equipment to monitor the movements of eagles. Thanks best resume services 2014

The social media guidelines now include definitions for Android, circles (the organizing feature of Google Plus, so spelled by AP), and flash mob. When asked about the capitalization rule for Internet and Wi-Fi, editor Darrell Christian said that although the terms may be lowercased someday, AP Stylebook is staying with the capitalized versions for now. - See more at: Alfamart official partner merchandise FIFA piala dunia Brazil 2014 IDRPoker.com Agen Texas Poker Online Indonesia Terpercaya Unit Link Terbaik di Indonesia Commonwealth Life Investra Link

I love pets especially when they are young. Though eagle appears to be scary ,it is really a sweet bird. How do you manage to feed this younger eagle? And i have so many doubts regarding the incubation as well.

The particular crew continued to operate lastly acquired your skeletal frame constructed. At this point all of us named in the helicopter. The particular scaffold and each of the some other lots was required to match in the helicopter's maximum weight loads, to ensure the closing set up like the inclusion of your complete floor at the 15' stage and a plywood encompass to safeguard the apparatus would have to be performed from your flats at the closing web site.grammar spelling check
