Discussion, Observation, Screenshots & Videos -- Chehalis-Harrison Estuary Cam - Fall 2012

Chehalis Flats Tower PTZ West - www.hancockwildlife.org/index.php?topic ... #TowerWest

Chehalis Flats Tower PTZ East - coming soon




This thread is set up to provide a place to discuss the eagles and other wildlife arriving to feed on the spawning salmon at the Chehalis River Estuary, as observed on our estuary cam.

Because this camera may be watched by school classes and we encourage children to visit the forum to learn about eagles and the other wildlife whose life cycles are linked to theirs - like salmon - we will be following a strict interpretation of our basic "no obscenity" rule, and we would appreciate your not using even the mild expletives and descriptions of bodily functions - gosh and golly are permitted - please consider some mythical maiden aunt or uncle looking at the forum with their great niece or nephew before using anything stronger.

"Poop" is an allowed word when referring to something done by an eaglet. We know that some words which describe bodily functions are also used as casual slang in some areas - but because they are considered far more impolite in some regions than others, we may change them to family-friendly alternatives. No PM is required because notice is being given here.

There is to be no discussion of politics or religion. And there is to be absolutely no personal attacks or bullying. All opinions are welcome and everyone's point of view is to be respected.

This is to some extent a self-regulating forum - and we all need your help to keep the forum running smoothly. If you see a post that has language that might upset a school board or that seems impolite or disrespectful to another person - please bring the post to our attention.

Thank you for your help!

Tower Cams: One of the existing PTZ HD Tower cams will be cleaned and, along with a new higher resolution PTZ , will be replaced on the Tower this fall. This will enable the cams to cover the Chehalis Flats area that has been occupied with between 5,000 and 10,000 eagles each of the last two spawning seasons. This project will require volunteers to manipulate the PTZs.

Chehalis Flats Tower Cams: The tower has already been donated and erected. The 1.5 kilometer distance from the nearest electric power has necessitated purchase of a fuel cell. This sizable investment has also been donated. This will drive 3 cams and the transmission of signals to the nearby Eagle Point pump house, where the local facilities have been provided by the Fraser Valley Regional District Parks. Ducks Unlimited is also a sponsor.

This season we are hoping to again install 2 PTZ cams, a security scanning cam and the transmitters.

Link HERE to an interesting article from David - about the collection of eagles - and why so many this early!

Link HERE to David's interview with Global TV about where the eagles go at night.
They go to some of the last remaining old woods - which need to be preserved!
