Thread subject: Gnat cam!
Name Date Message
DaisyG 04/26/11 06:26 am LOL Can I clear up a misunderstanding about this so called SAASKI cam? :)

It says SAAKSI in the URL which it would, as saaksi is Finnish for osprey. Saaksi got misspelled on here as SAASKI which means 'gnat' and the name seems to have stuck.

The actual cam is at Marjaniemi on the island of Hailuoto so should really be called the Hailuoto or Marjaniemi cam and not GNAT :)
Celeste 04/26/11 08:50 am At first glance at the thread Daisy I thought, hmmmm a gnat cam?! How funny!!:-))
Pam 04/26/11 10:28 am Me too Celeste....gnats? whatever next? Thanks Daisy for the clarification.
Kathy 04/26/11 11:03 am When I saw GNAT Cam...I thought we have gone nuts...and pushed our cam watching to the extreme! LOL!
Marie 04/26/11 11:13 am Thanks Daisy.
DaisyG 04/26/11 11:43 am LOL thought it might give you all a laugh :)
martyc35 04/26/11 01:53 pm I have always preferred Saaksi, because I pronounce it (no doubt incorrectly) as Sexy. Considering that I think ospreys are pretty sexy, the Finnish name has always worked for me:-). Sexy in Nauvo, sexy in Hailuoto, but without the Gnats, please. They do have lots of biting bugs up north, mostly mosquitoes and midges, though. When I visited Denali, I had to stay on the bus and look at the Loon through binoculars because of the swarms of mosquitoes.

cathy 04/26/11 04:53 pm Today I told my Finnish friend that the Saaksi had returned to Suomi. She said there are two ways to pronounce it: "saaksi" and "sassi".
Lyn 04/27/11 01:51 pm It certainly gave me an out loud chuckle! LOL
