Hey Jean! :hello:

I'm getting excited about the new cam too. This year, we'll have night vision and sound! I know I posted somewhere on the old thread the calls they make, but now we'll be able to hear them all the time. Clapping

I keep checking, but still no word on when the cam will be up and running. :ds:

After not hearing anything, other than there are supposed to be 2 eggs on the nest, for quite some time, Africam has posted this on Facebook....

BLACK EAGLE UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have had some very difficult challenges with communications as of late. The good news is eMoyeni is on the nest, and she definately looks like she is sitting on some eggs. We hope to have the cam live streaming very soon. Until then, you can see a LIVE preview refresh cam here: http://www.africam.com/cam.php?ID=be



I've tried the link they provided and you have to be very patient waiting for it to refresh. Patience is definitely a virtue there. Nodding yes

From the refresh cam...

I'm not sure which parent this is, but at one point, one was off the nest, and I didn't see the eggs. I don't know if this is the same parent or not. :dunno:

Thanks for following up with this, nightowl! I've been wondering how they're doing, but haven't managed to look during daylight there to see if the cam is up.

You're welcome Judy! No word that I know of, as to when the live streaming cam will be up and running again. I'm not sure of the refresh rate of this cam, but sometimes the seconds don't tick by at all, so the time is off by a minute or two. I do know it takes forever for the cam to refresh, so much so that at times, I refresh it myself. Titter

Another little tidbit from Facebook...

Tanya Becker: the eggs are due to hatch +-1st week in June. We are still working on the webcam. Few technical things needs to be sorted out.

I was thinking their nest was in a cave last year - seems unlikely that they moved, so perhaps the cam has moved in with them?
