Also, the Compost and K-Box Nest cams are acting up unrelated to this.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know why it went dark.
Pete 4/7/17 In advance of Barn Owl Banding Day tomorrow, I’m shutting down the PSFL cam for now and replacing it with a view of where we’ll be doing the banding.
Such support keep this and other Starr Ranch cams going.
(You can fulfill your pledge or make a donation .) Your generosity also helps keep the rest of Starr Ranch operational. I also want to thank you for making this cam page more than I ever thought it would be.
I think they wound up nesting in a cavity somewhere a few hundred yards south of it.
Well, at least lately the adults have been flying around calling like crazy so I suspect there are fledglings out.In the meantime, some European Honeybees rediscovered the box and apparently are deciding to call it home again. Nonetheless, those of you who pledged will still get a chance to guess a species. Again, I’ll shortly be emailing the link to do this as well as other Birdathon followup.Check out this 2 min clip from around 3PM on May 23rd of how fast they got to work. Pete 5/15/17 Wynne kindly (and gently) let me now that Steve mentioned the 100th Birdtahon species in his recap. Pete 05/14/17 Hmmmm, it appears the LED’s that provide the night time infrared view of the cavity are no longer working. Pete 4/21/16 I think you all know that I don’t often make a pitch for support.Pete 4/6/2017 I’m FINALLY getting to sending t-shirts to those who get one because they donated or more per egg. This will take you to a page with event details and where you can preregister. Pete Just a heads up that if things continue to progress as they have I will be banding the Barn Owl chicks on Saturday April 8th.When you click Submit you will get an email from me with a link to where you can make your donation. As many of you know, this is an important fundraiser for Starr Ranch that helps provide funds for everything that goes on here, including running the webcams. The agenda: 11AM-12PM Session 1 Owl biology talk with at least one live owl from the Orange County Bird of Prey Center 12PM-1PM Session 2 arrives.Anyway, I was doing some mowing and clipped the “Starr Ranch’s Bell Creek” cam cable by accident, so that will be off until I get back.
