2019 Log

Web log with pictures and descriptions of the nest box activity - updated a couple of times per week, or more often when something interesting happens.  You can view the blog here and you can also subscribe to receive new blog postings via email. 

Live Video is done until next year 

East Nest

* Camera is in the white dome looking straight down.
The nesting season has ended and the ducks are no longer using this nest. THIS CAMERA IS NOW OFFLINE.
It will be back on again next spring, when the ducks return.

West Nest

* Camera is in the "back room" looking in from the side.
The nesting season has ended and the ducks are no longer using this nest. THIS CAMERA IS NOW OFFLINE.
It will be back on again next spring, when the ducks return.


  • You may have to click the triangular "play" button to start the video and you may have to click the little speaker icon to turn on the audio. If you don't see these try clicking/touching the video playback area.
  • It can take a while (as much as 30 seconds) before the video starts.
  • The nest boxes are lit by the camera's infrared lights at night (the ducks can't see this and they think it is dark).
  • Infrared light causes a black-and-white image, there is no color at night. This also can occur on a dim, cloudy day or when a duck is sitting in the nest box opening, blocking the daylight.
  • There is audio - you may have to turn up your speaker volume.
  • I'm using a free streaming service so there are ads - sorry. If you go to full screen the ads disappear. To do that, click/touch the video area to make the controls appear and look for the little full screen icon.

Information

Do you have questions about the ducks, the nest boxes, the site, the cameras? Here are some answers.


Videos

Over the years I've created some videos about the ducks while in the nest and the day when they jump from the nest box and start their first day out in the world. 

Old Logs

The logs for 2016, 2017, and 2018 have descriptions of events and lots of photos. Also if you want to see what a season's blog looks like these are examples (using an older web site format).
