First Flight videos are on YouTube & more news

Without any further delay, I have reviewed, compiled & uploaded both first flight videos.  Watch the expressions in the eyes & head movements of the remaining osprey in the nest.

 

The news – we do have some relatively exciting news for this fall.  We will be renting a 45-50′ lift in late September to do some maintenance.  Once I have a plan together for the maintenance, I will post it online.  We will be installing a second camera with an external, high quality, line-level microphone.  The camera will be a stationary camera that doesn’t move.  It will be 4K (everyone is familiar with this resolution now due to television) with a varifocal lens that will allow us to simply zoom in & out of the center of the nest.  4K translates to 8MP.  Our current camera is 2MP.  This new camera is slated to be the primary & audio will be enabled.  The existing camera will be used for personal reasons & as a backup to the primary camera in the event of a failure.  That is the basics for now.  More will come later.

 

On with the show!
