~Great news! BB & Smoky have cam!!!

The University of Buffalo has taken over providing a webcam for the nestbox of BB and Smoky! The cam installed today delivers excellent high-def views, which we were able to see from inside the tower. The website will be provided by UB. Connection to the internet should be complete early next and I'll post the url as soon as it is available. Stay tuned!

According to Ken Neusstein, BB was calm but interested and stayed on the perch for the whole process, except for a brief time when she flew off, but quickly returned. Smoky was also nearby.

Around noon today, BB and Smoky were engaging in aerial displays, flying in cirles and ee-chupping to each other, so I'd say the cam got installed just in time!

Beautiful BB

This is the fantastic, high-def monitor view from the inside of MacKay Tower

Smoky, or a reasonable facsimile thereof?
