Taking Advantage of our PTZ at Lafarge

Hancock Wildlife Foundation - Lafarge New Camera - Vista of Vancouver's North ShoreNow that Tenas Chakchak, our eagleHancock Wildlife Foundation - Lafarge New Camera - Feeding Platformt at the Lafarge site, has fledged, we get to take advantage of the fact that the camera we're using has the ability to pan, tilt and zoom around the tree's neighbourhood.

The parents and Tenas have been in and out of the tree all day, and when in the tree they've been on any of several branchesHancock Wildlife Foundation - Lafarge new camera - Overall Nest Tree or up on the feeding platform.

Rather than trying to track them, a problem made difficult by the fact that the video is about 30 seconds delayed from the control inputs due to the network, we've put in place a program that visits several of the many "waypoints" that we've defined at fairly random times and in fairly random order.Hancock Wildlife Foundation - Lafarge Cement Plant Vancouver - New Camera "branch2" eagle perch

We'll leave this program running for the time being - chances are that you'll see one or more of the eagles on each cycle which lasts from about 1 to 5 minutes.
