The camera is up - let the viewing begin....soon!

Fasten your seat belts, and get ready to start your hawkwatch engines -- the new camera is now in position at the nest!!

On Thursday, Gene Mancini told us on the Hawkaholic Facebook page that the installation of the camera was underway, and yesterday our intrepid photo-journalist, Kay Meng, took these pictures of the spiffy new camera. It is located outside the window, so we won't have to contend with weird reflections.

To my inexpert eye, it also looks as if the camera may have some rotational capability so we can keep better track of nest antics.

As Kay was checking out the nest, she was treated to the unforgettable sight of one of the parent birds (haggards) flying nearby in yesterday's bright sun.

Absolutely no question that these are red tail hawks!
