Cam 1 Down For 2016 Season
On the morning of April 29, the Cornell Hawks pan-tilt-zoom cam went offline unexpectedly. After all attempts to contact the cam remotely failed, we made a trip on May 3 to a cluster of equipment mounted lower on the pole, underneath the nest. The good news was that, as expected, the hawks didn't really care that we were working up on the pole. We did our best to stay out of sight underneath the nest, and I think she appreciated that. The bad news is that the issue with cam 1 is happening somewhere above the equipment cluster on the pole, either with the cable feeding the cam OR with the cam itself. This means that the cam will likely be offline the rest of the season.
