||It is possible to watch both the DPOF cam and the live cams at : http://www.wdfw.wa.gov/wildwatch/heroncam/index.html
at the same time (Greedy I know). The Kenmore great blue herons are nesting and in Cam 2 the female is sitting on three eggs. If you are even more greedy, like me and your computer will stand the strain, you can watch Race Rocks as well. I saw a news item this evening which reports that people are now paying to, with the aid of their computers, remotely shoot wildlife, for real. How sick can you get ????

||03/13/05 04:00 pm
||I am so excited, thank you DPOF!!
||03/13/05 04:22 pm
||Feels so good to be back live. I heard a bunch of geese flying overhead.

||I am getting a very blurry image.......and I cleaned my glasses too.....is any one else seeing an unclear image.......//
Thanks so very much the DPOF boys.......Now to watch and wait, and see who comes close to the arrival date...... ;-))

||Well - I'm out Marie, my prediction was for yesterday LOL
||03/13/05 06:47 pm
||yes its very blurry and the sound is lower.
Maybe its so blurry because we`re ALL watching? lol
Im just exstatic its operating!
Im sure things will be tweaked. This webcam beats all others!

||Arrived home today after dark and did'nt get a chance to see the nest during the daylight.
My question is "will there be a night mode again ?"
As I read the previous post's I see there is some concern about the picture quality,,, Is the quality good enough to view the birds ?Now I have to wait till morning.

||Pam - I have tabs in my browser so I open 8 windows in tabs - all bird cams and check on them all several times a day. For DPOF- I have realplayer link on my desktop so I don't have to look at the little window in the middle of the page. Thanks - its truly a heroic effort and makes a huge difference in public awareness to be able to see and hear birds up close.

||Hey all....... it's 10:59 at night....do you know where your ospreys are??????? I am sooo happy to be sitting here looking at a dark empty nest. I think we are all happily nuts!!! :-))))

I've been missing in action but I've kept up with the news through Celeste so here I am to say a "Hi" and thank Dave, Tom and Rick for pulling it off! Excellent!
I have a clear picture but the sound does seem to be way low. I had to load a new version of RealOne Player because I got a message saying that I didn't have the right Plug-ins to support the video. It seemed wacky but it's working now so guess it doesn't matter.
I hope Betty and Dennis stay away for another week...it's just too likely to snow one more time and after this winter I feel like we might get really hit
But, oh how nice it is to hear the sounds of the wetlands through the cam again!!!
||03/14/05 03:24 pm
||I was wondering where you have been Cecilia and was thinking of asking Celeste about your whereabouts.I agree with you about the snow,,,,happening again. Last year it snowed on the 16th, 2 days after the Birds arrived . Remember them sitting in the snow?
||03/14/05 05:42 pm
||Hi Tim...good to see you're still around too!
I do remember that storm and the nest swaying in the wind and cold...Brrrrrr!!! I felt so sorry for them sitting up there so exposed. We haven't had a really nice spring in about 3 years...I'm hoping this year we (and they) get a break!
I'm listening to the blackbirds, the geese and the wind right now...wetland music!
