Thread subject: HD Cam with Sound
||06/13/11 06:27 pm
||I can't remember if I posted this cam w/sound in the past, if I did forgive my mushy brain. The Univ. of Montana and some other organizations sponsor this HD Cam/Sound and the resolution is the same at full screen. The microphone is very sensitive. The 2 chicks were getting fed earlier and were chirping with delight. Below is the link, they also sponsor 2 other cams (no sound):

||Thanks for the warning; that is some sound. Good to turn it down a bit before tuning in. Great setup, though.

||It looks like one of the 3 chicks is dead, dad is standing over it right now.

||I was showing this to another osprey buddy and that was the first thing I thought that there was a dead chick in the nest but I couldn't be sure. The dead chick also looks quite a bit larger than the larger surviving chick, or is that my imagination?
That was also a really ugly piece of something that Dad brought in - it almost looked more like a piece of roadkill than recognizable as fish.
Mom has spent more time dining off the mystery meat rather than feeding the chicks although she has been passing off to the bigger one.

||Mel, I also noticed the little runt hadn't moved in quite some time and was really small so figured it was a goner. Here's some history behind these nests and their proximity to a Superfund site, the old canary in a mine warning system:

||Really something how those osprey zero in on that twine (unfortunately). Hopefully people will be educated and remedy the situation..
