Installation of Cornell’s hawk cam

If you’ve been watching Cornell Lab’s hawk cam, you’ve likely been impressed by the quality of the livestream. That quality is no accident: the installation was carefully planned, and involves two cameras and a microphone which took a team three days to install.

Now Cornell has released a video of the team’s efforts, which is definitely worth a look. My hat is off to those techs wiring the cameras, 70 feet in the air, in what looks like bitter weather. Brrr!

    I’ve been watching since I saw your post about them and they are getting really big! Also there is a link on the page to a heron next and some baby bluebirds.

    Plus I found a link to another hawk-cam: http://metobs.ssec.wisc.edu/aoss/cameras/hawkcam-flash.html

    Be patient, it takes time to load..
