Dear Raptor Cam Viewers,
Welcome to the start of the 2012 Raptor Cam season! The video link will not be up and running until mid February when the action around the nest begins to increase, but we will be posting updates here and on the Raptor Cam Facebook Page.
The following pictures were taken last week. I was in a meeting mostly not paying attention and watching out the window when the hawks flew in and landed on the downtown microwave antenas. It is possible that they were other red-tails but the microwave tower is located quite close to the nest site and it is a favorite perch of the raptor cam red-tails.
Over the next few weeks we will be cleaning the raptor cam video lense and repositioning and checking the connections to make sure that everything is good to go when nesting begins.
