Views of the new camera location and equipment this afternoon.  Where is it in relation to the camera we are used to seeing? And how will the view be different?  Info to come!

Just checking in.  See new cam image.  Can't seem to sign on to Chatroll.  Things seem to be progressing.

Clarinda, welcome back to the Flyway forum!  I seldom log in to the chats, but it was working on Wednesday.  Give it another try on Friday.  The Decorah chats won't be back until October, but the Flyway stays active all year.

So far, I can't tell one cam view from the other. I'm sure we will all figure it out as time goes along.

Yesterday there were several sandhill cranes in view with the many, many other birds.  Their calls are very distinctive, and their size, too.

Does anybirdy know exactly what RRP meant about a "new cam on the flyway"  Peeps here have said "they like it" but I have yet to ascertain whether there's a new cam or the current cam has been re-perched on a taller pole offering us a shot of the old pole stripped of all it's gear.  I would illustrate my meaning if I was gifted with computereeze and could "easily post a picture for you" of what I'm saying, but with a very experienced eye on the flyway, I'd say the picture we're viewing now is a new camera on a taller pole on the same (nearly) location as what is the location of our old solar panel.  The old camera pole is what we see....like the apes in 2001: Space Odyssey!
Comments?   :) ;)

Clarinda, love that sunrise pic today!  And moonset too.  Night before last, I noticed that Orion is back in the early morning sky -- Northern Hemisphere.

eburg,  great comments about the cameras at the Flyway.  Like you, I'm waiting for the official word from RRP.  New or replacement, now one camera or two and exactly where are they?  All will be revealed in good time.
