From RRP's FB page:

Raptor Resource Project added 17 new photos to the album: RRP at Work.
5 hrs

A look into some of the work we do!

9/18/18: More photos from the Mississippi Refuge Flyway cam install, which is now online at https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/upper-mississippi-onalaska-cam/ and https://explore.org/livecams/birds/mississippi-river-flyway-cam

7/31/18 and 8/4/18: Installing poles for a camera and solar panels at the Upper Mississippi National Fish and Wildlife Refuge, headquartered in Brice Prairie, Wisconsin. We were helped by members of the Brice Prairie Association, Brice Prairie EMS and Rescue, the Fish and Wildlife service, landowner Rich King, volunteer Dean Peterson, and Susan, Jonathan, and Laura Howe!

RRP Photo Album - RRP at Work: https://www.facebook.com/pg/RaptorResourceProject/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1138498532853431

A few of the new photos:


08/30/2018: John at his new office in the Mississippi River!


09/08/18: Amy and John mounting the solar panels. Also helping were John Dingley (pictured), Richard Meredith, and Calvin and Eric from the Refuge.


08/04/18: Joe directs the pole install. The pole was belayed on earth anchors that were screwed into the ground. He used an x-shaped brace and poles to help put it into place and keep the ground crew safe.

And some of the older photos of the install:


8/4/18: Getting the first pole ready for hoisting! It was lifted in the cross brace, slid forward until it hit the end of the hole, and hoisted and pulled into the air.


7/31/18: Kendra, Calvin, and Jake from US Fish and Wildlife helped us get the poles out to the island in their large pontoon!


8/4/18: Leaving the island after a job well done!

T40.  Thanks so much for the pictures !

So much work and love went into the installation of this new cam, to show and educate us, our enjoyment all together as lovers of nature. Its a place we can come to , to share a slice of heaven and peace, in a world of chaos.
Thank you so much RRP!!!

Oh No!  Another cam to get hooked on!  :)

Just got in for the first time and saw 5 species of birds right from the get-go!  If this doesn't satisfy our bird watching, nothing will!  Thanks for all the hard work getting it up and operational!  ;D
My spirit will never be broken or caught, for the soul is a free flying thing, like an eagle that needs neither comfort or thought to rise up on glorious wings.
