I wanted to give you an update on the sound and clear up a couple of other points.
The sound has not worked since we installed the new camera. It is not clear if it is a software issue or a hardware issue. We are hoping to have it resolved in the next couple of weeks. If we have to go back up to the nest, we need to do that before the weather turns cold and stays cold.
Some of you have asked about the 15 minute timeout on the feed. I have discussed this before, but it is a feature we have added. While we know some people want to stay connected all day, Alcoa is paying for the data feed required to stream this video. We are happy to provide the feed, but we don't want to pay for data when it is not really being used. That means those of you who want to stay connected will have to continue to refresh or restart your feed. If we can come up with a different process, I will let you know.
I see the comments about the new/young eagle in the nest today. I did catch a glimpse of the live feed at one point this morning. I do not believe the visitor today is connected to Liberty and Justice. The first eaglets since they have been using this nest were in March of 2010 (6 months before we installed the camera) and they had two eaglets that year. Those two would be about 2 1/2 years old now and not likely to have the white head or tail feathers yet.
Happy viewing everyone!
