Thank you for getting cliff cam up and running again.  This camera is my favorite for viewing life on the Mississippi.  Some people don't find anything to view there unless the peregrines are present, but I like the road, rail and river traffic just as much.  And the eagles.  And the weather.  And all the plants and insects and critters our camera operators find.  Thanks again.  :)

eburg, thanks for the update about the GSB cam back on live.  Speculation, about why it was down:  In the Giving Tuesday presentation, John & Amy talked about adding a camera to the "far side" of the cliff so that we can see what's going on there.  Perhaps they were installing the new equipment.  Feel free to chime in if anyone has more accurate info.   :D

I like watching GSB for all of the various activities, too.  Mostly the peregrines, of course. Last season was the best since I've been watching this location, 5 years or so.

White swans on the ice at GSB.  Cannot tell if they are Tundra swans or Trumpeter swans.
