It's so cold, especially up there in the nest. I wonder how they cope. Now, how hard would it be to put a little electric blanket up there for them?

An electric blanket...really. They do just fine in the cold or they would not live in this region. After all they are not pets, however they may eat your pets...

I'm wondering who actually runs the Eagle Cam feed, and if MilesCity.com was blocked from it?

I can get to it from your link. It looks great! Some friends of mine found out it was the setting on their computers that blocked them not the Eagle Cam.

Thanks, but that's different.

I'm talking about accessing the Eagle Cam feed by the MilesCity.com site itself, for the purpose of indexing / promoting their web site.

Unless I'm mistaken, it appears after I started work towards that, it was then locked down to prevent third-party access (such as that from MilesCity.com) -- which basically makes it much less "public" and much more "private".

Which seems a bit odd, considering I assume tax dollars have been spent to support it.

Perhaps I'm wrong though. That's why I asked for a contact.

Posted by MeiMei (+161) 6 years ago
I think the majority of the monies used came from donations. There are quite a few private donors. Yes, this had to be a project in coordination and sanctioned by the FWP but as far as I know, the majority of real funds are donations, the others might be in-kind- for example - the use of equipment to reach the camera to adjust it when the first nest fell and the new nest was built. I am sure someone at FWP could answer any questions about it. I do know firsthand of several private party cash donations.

I also believe that even state agencies cannot access the camera from their workplace as filters block it.

I don't want to cause a big ruckus about it, since my intention was only to promote the Eagle Cam site -- like I did in the past with the first two other MC webcam sites -- and was progressing well towards that goal, but then all of a sudden it appears I'm blocked. I would like to know why -- and if that's actually what happened.

There's no contact information on their site (that I noticed) indicating who actually controls the AngelCam account for where it's hosted.
Top
Posted by MeiMei (+161) 6 years ago
I understand your interest in promoting it and I appreciate it very much as it is quite an amazing opportunity and very near and dear to me.

I know there are people far and wide who have enjoyed it including some people who are undergoing cancer treatments in another state and students in classrooms in other areas of our state.

I hope you can get your information without causing undue commotion. I know it is precious and I would hate to see us lose it. I do know that it took a lot of determination on the major role players and there were a lot of bridges to cross in the process.

Thanks for the interest.

I think Dean Hanvold of Technology Plus would be a good person to check with.

http://www.milescitystar....nd-nesting

"Dean Hanvold of Technology Plus installed the camera last year and provides maintenance. On the eagle cam Web site, he noted that he serviced the camera on Feb. 23 and adjusted the view to the new nest."

Unfortunately a quick search of the Internet didn't turn up any contact info. for "Technology Plus" in Miles City.

Eagles LOVE fish. They will eat other birds and squirrels if they are really hungry. Contrary to popular rumor, there are no dog and/or cat collars in the nest and they have never been seen eating a cat or dog.

They located the nest so they can get fish, which is by far their preferred meal. To the point that a crazy squirrel was teasing one of the eagles yesterday and the eagle, while it got annoyed, didn't bother to try to kill it, let alone eat it.

Milescity.com is not being blocked intentionally, we would love to have it embedded and promoted. The problem is we are using their free streaming account, and it can not be embedded to a web page. In order to embed it we would have to upgrade to a premium account and pay a monthly fee. Here is the link to the Anglecam page for the services and pricing that they offer, https://www.angelcam.com/apps/live-streaming. Thank you for trying Larry.

The lighting was good at one point today and I got a good look at the dark area in the nest. It was a baby duck rather dead with his head down but still surrounded by dark but I could see the bill, eyes with a backward slick from the eye. all covered in a dark gray downy feathers.

That's odd. I would assume that error should not display on their own site - so no idea why it's appearing. I offered to pay for embedding to external sites (so places like MilesCity.com could display the video feed, or at least a relatively recent icon link to the video feed), but apparently the "decision makers" were not interested. Or at least they never got back to me.

>> Eagles like fish.

: -) Like most predators, eagles take whatever can be found at the least risk of suffering harm or injury. An injury is usually a death sentence for wild predators. That’s one reason they’re not slow to scavenge carrion. This one was begging for scraps as we butchered out a caribou a few winters back. But it was a fair trade, the eagle got a free meal and we got some great photos of the ol’ girl.

Hal, in Miles City an injury would bring Alison Campbell, a local saint, to the rescue. However, I think those parents are very busy feeding those babies. Just saw the babies , more like teens a few minutes ago in the nest and they are growing fast. It won't be much longer, and thy will be flexing their wings.

If you only knew what this does to an eagle-cam addict like myself. Every time it doesn't pop up promptly I imagine the worst....some Miles City nimrod shot up the nest, a Martez pennanti feasted on eaglets, crows or ravens chased them out of the nest, some other Miles City nimrod took revenge for missing ducklings....things like that.

I watched the nest for a while this afternoon. An adult was at the nest. The kids are asleep in the nest. It looks like the nest got some new bedding which seems to be partially blocking the view. As you can probably tell I'm addicted to checking on them.

6/19 at 3:42 pm there appeared be a storm. with rain drops on the camera's lens. The youngsters were hopping back and forth when one took off, hovered over the nest for a while and then came back. The other flew to the old nest and then the screen went black. it was exciting to watch.

They are teenagers. They stand as far apart from each other as they can, one on the far edge of the old nest and one on the branch near the camera on the new nest. I don't know if Mom sent them to their rooms or they are just sulking.

I have noticed in the day when it gets hotter they go further in to the shade on the limb to the far right, but in the last few day they have been flying from nest to nest and one hover over the nest. you could see his/her legs in the mid air and then come down to the nest. I guess it's best to check in the evening to see if they are back at the nest. I wouldn't be surprised if the adults have taken them some where close to show them how to hunt their food.
