RRP said last week on their Facebook page that they're working on the nest cams now.  It reminded me of this pic that I meant to post earlier.  It's an RRP pic from 2016 and shows Amy at DNN -- the cam is 18 ft. away from the nest.

Thanks for the pic, Ginger!

It's nice to see the work RRP does when the cams are off for maintenance.

Great pic Ginger!  Amy truly can do it all!  What devotion they have to climb that high to do camera maintenance.  Grateful to RRP for all they do to make viewing possible.

Ginger, Thanks for the pic of Amy at work on a North camera!  Doesn't matter that it isn't from this year!  Great to have the perspective of where this camera is relative to the nest. And nice to see Amy, too.  Looking forward to the new season.

Here's the DNN nest on the first day of this new season, ready for occupancy!  This location has a couple new cameras, and the pics are going to be spectacular.

More panorama pics from DNN this afternoon. In the pic with the bright red tree, there's a large bird soaring. In the rewind you can see two of them. I think eagles, but could be vultures.  What do you think?

Always grand to have great weather on Opening Day!

One BE in the Scary Tree just after daybreak today. (Correct tree ID?)  And later, a hawk perched across the creek, and panorama of the area. Good to see familiar pasture and forest sights like the Brush Pile and the Yonder Tree. 

Soaring again today, but too far for me to ID.  Cardinal and other little birds visiting the nest this morning -- good viewing on the rewind to test our ID skills!  Starling, house sparrow, bluejay, robin, and more.

Not sure what Mr. North was eating, but he seemed to enjoy it
