Black live cam on now
Black live cam on now
Scylla – you mentioned having trouble the other day. Thank you ALL for your contributions on Tuesday (and every other day…) They really are deeply appreciated. She will be on hand to clean the cam lenses from time to time. Pete 9/25/17 The at Starr Ranch tomorrow, Tuesday 9/26. Will likely start around 8AM PST and be out most of the day. Pete 9/1/17 First off, it’s been blistering hot here lately at Starr Ranch. There have been two juvenile Ravens around who have taken a shine to the compost and like to visit it often. I will also be reinstalling the watering hole cam because it is dry, dry, dry here and I’m seeing misc wildlife now even coming in to the drip that is always there. And while Gretchen, Jorge and I still need to fine-tune some stuff on the new cams for the cavity and PTZ I’m hoping to get them up soon.
He then programmed them in Linux (he is a whiz at this and many other things) and they have been great.
This will get resolved, but if not in the next day or two I can go up there and install a separate IR light source for the cavity cam. However, I really want to get the new higher def cams installed.
So sorry for the delay, but as we all know – and in the words of the great Roseanne Roseannadana: “It’s always something…” Pete 11/30/17 I’m still trying to work out some technical issues with Jorge on the two new cams. This will mean the cavity and PTZ cams could be down for some time during the swap. I also made a tweak to our donate pages so it should now accept international donations. I was told that we may be back up before 3pm so I suggest you start checking back in around 1PM. But this evening it was a bit cool (95…) so I reinstalled the compost cam.

2/6/18 OK everyone, if you want to guess when the first egg hatches click HERE.
The tasseled wobbegong shark is tricky to spot—its ornate camouflaged exterior is easily mistaken for a piece of coral.
But if you look closely at the left corner of our underwater viewing area, you’re likely to notice her resting in her favorite spot near the glass.Real barrier reefs can take 100,000 to 30 million years to fully form, so growing our own coral wasn’t an option.Instead, we painstakingly crafted our own—all 3,000 pieces of it—from the molds of real coral skeletons.Check out this 2 min clip from around 3PM on May 23rd of how fast they got to work. Pete 5/15/17 Wynne kindly (and gently) let me now that Steve mentioned the 100th Birdtahon species in his recap. Pete 05/14/17 Hmmmm, it appears the LED’s that provide the night time infrared view of the cavity are no longer working. Pete 4/21/16 I think you all know that I don’t often make a pitch for support.So, once the BNOW fledglings are no longer returning to the cavity and it’s vacant for a while – which is what typically and eventually happens – I will go up there and install a new camera (the one that’s there is REALLY old), In the meantime, the cavity is being partially “lit up” by the infrared LED’s from the PTZ cam, so that’s why you can still see a little bit there at night. However, as we approach the end of April, the “2017 Starr Ranch Birdathon Month”, I’m really hoping you will consider making a pledge.One of the unique characteristics about blacktip reef sharks is their camaraderie.
