Cornell Hawks Chat Begins!
We're excited to share that the chat on the Cornell Hawks cam will go live TODAY Wednesday, April 15, at noon Eastern Time. This year we're using a new client called Chatroll, which offers increased stability and performance over our previous tools. You'll need a new login on our Chatroll server to participate in chat (see instructions in our Chat Guidelines under the cam), but as in past years, anyone can read chat without logging in. In order to access the chat, click the "Join Chat" button beneath the live stream and a resizable window should pop out. Chatroll is also accessible from mobile devices, so you can chat on your phone or tablet as well. Currently, chat hours are scheduled to be 6–9 A.M., 12–3 P.M., and 6–10 P.M., when moderators are available. We hope you enjoy sharing your observations and thoughts about the birds with our moderators and the rest of the community. We'll continue to post updates on the Bird Cams Facebook page and on Twitter at birdcams.
