Streamkeepers earn their Keep!

Most of our followers think of our eagles and how well they are doing. As an ecologist I think of how well the eagle habitat is being maintained so that the eagles can do well. The local Streamkeepers, those volunteers who get paid in satisfaction - not money, have been doing wonders to improve many of the local streams. The results are starting to come home -- the cleaned up streams are starting to again see spawning salmon, something that has not happened in many years for some streams. Thanks Streamkeepers for the good work.

The HWF does fund a marvelous live streaming cam showing over the season all 5 salmon, steelhead and the two local trout -- it is running as I write this and many fish, probably a late run of coho and various trout, are buzzing by. The Cam is located in the Chehalis River just a kilometre north of where we had the Tower cams showing the 1200 eagles each morning and the present Harrison Mills bald eagle nest cam.

We need some Streamkeepers and fisheries folks to start some Forum discussions on this marvelous resource at our site, to discuss the needs of fish, rivers etc. It is also exciting that the Harrison - Chehalis River complex has been defined as Canada's best salmon river. The HWF and the FVBEF have just become invited members of this new Stronghold group. Our objectives, which you will be hearing more about over time, are to keep this river system the "best salmon river in Canada" - and this will not just ensure the continued source of food for eagles, waterfowl and sturgeon, but insure that the previous 6400 years of continuous occupancy by people of the Chehalis Flats continues.

The Fisheries & Oceans Canada report on some Chum salmon improvements this year are encouraging.

Cheers,
David

I'd like to add that this camera has been extremely reliable this season. Almost no downtime and not one episode of algae buildup on the lens. Well done Ken and all who work to keep our cams functioning!!

Have you posted the video somewhere yet, Kay? Can't seem to find it.:confused: I'm glad to see you all got a kick out of seeing it. It was a delight to see to be sure.



Terry, I uploaded the videos to Hancock YouTube channel this morning; I didn't have time to do it last night.

Video Camera Diving Female Merganser Ducks



Finally got to have a peek at this video... seeing the duck in motion makes it so much better than just my s'caps. I tried to leave a comment on the YouTube page but for some reason it wouldn't let me... Just want to state that the Time display on the Camera stream is 1 hour fast: The duck event was at about 3:00pm NOT 4:00pm as the time on the cam window display says.

Thanks again Kay.
