I went to the WHOI nest yesterday...nest check. The nest platform has been rebuilt, added a perch, and nesting material cleaned up and put back in place. Jeff said I wouldn't believe the things they found in the nest (OH YES I DO), his best find was a camera As you will see from my photo, the cam is gone....to quote Jeff "the schmutz on the cam was on the inside of the housing". The cam will be clear, and up before the start of the nesting season.

They found a camera in the nest?? Mom and Dad were trying to take pictures of us???

More seriously, thanks for the great pic, Jazzel! I know this is your "home" nest - and it's also near and dear to me, so I hope they have a great season in their "new" nest. Smile

WHOI has a new cam, they put it up yesterday. I went down to watch, but of course I didn't have my camera with me to get pictures of the installation, DUH! I went back today to get a few site pics of the cam.

The cam is in place, and focused, they just need a couple of days to get the new server stuff tweaked. I got to see the cam view on their computer, it's going to be great. Also with the new server the cam won't go down like it used to, Jeff is very happy about that!!! The link to the cam will remain the same.

The cam has zoom. Also, sound, which they decided at this point not to use, because of wind interference. They couldn't get the new perch in the cam view because they're using the same mounting pole from last year and it's to late to change it now, but they will put a new mount up next year. The cam even has a windshield wiper! And, they put in a little gravel road to access the nest.

Jeff did a great job getting the funding and everything in place for the NEW WHOI CAM PROJECT....THANK YOU JEFF!!!

Soph, the cam will go live sometime early next week, if not before.

The new server is still tweaking things on their end...that's the only thing holding it up.
