||Hello All! As you know, the camera was hit by lightning last season and is in need of repair. We were not able to fix it in time for this season so we purchased a new one (expensive), which was delivered on last Tuesday. We hope to have the camera operational by tomorrow afternoon (March 13), but it depends on the weather and if we find any more trouble from last yearĂ˘€™s storm. So, I apologize for the suspense, we just donĂ˘€™t know for sure and I didnĂ˘€™t want to raise too many hopes. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.

||Sending positive vibes from up here in Canada, too!! Thank you for the update!
Now, let us all join hands together and form a protective circle around the cam site to keep out bad weather, howling winds and other interferences.

||I can't believe how excited I am about this whole thing!! I feel like the kids are coming home for a visit! The snow was a mess this morning; but it sure did look real nice around the river @ Wertheim. I haven't seen any osprey in the neighborhood. I've been checking every morning on my way to work, but I could have missed them. Best of luck with the camera installation. :-)

||OK........so today it starts.
Every morning you wake up and go directly to the pc and turn it on. Passing the bathroom and toothbrush. And if you have them you pass the kids and hubby ;)
Then you wait for it to bootup and go directly to the webcam. You dont even check email because this is whats done to get what we`ve missed for SIX MONTHS! Soon we will be on Osprey Time.
Let nature begin :)

||How true. Then there are the "wow look at this!!!" to the somewhat interested spouse or friend who makes the obligatory trip to the screen for the latest cute, interesting, odd, tragic, amazing event. Then to satisfy the need to share the moment with other equally enthusiasts, frantic entry into the observation or message board with gratifyingly appropriate responses.

||It is early I know........but the screen on the video reads.......'SORRY NO LIVE VIDEO'... ;-((
We need a head shot of an osprey...not that soft toy that is displayed.......
Any chances of a new pic to look at when the camera is down...Dave or Tom...?
