Thank you guys for wading through the morass of this – ahem – screwed-up site or chat or both to determine if the WE eaglet, Owle, has or has not fledged. I’m thinking it’s a little too early for a fledge. Anyway, maybe in a few days some of the snags will get untangled. At least I don’t feel quite as stupid as I felt before. Yous guys, aka nest rangers, are “tha best” ……. bigsmile

OK, I aired my frustration over the WE site . . . wouldn’t you know when I hit “post comment” it disappeared into oblivion. Figures! Hmmmm, it’s completely dark in Portland (also Left Coast, as is WE) but it’s daylight on the WE nest. And, when I hit “live” the red lite comes on leading one to believe that the feed is live. NOT! Wouldn’t it be nice to have a legend that denotes “”previously recorded” and for the “live” to disappear? Definitely some fine tuning required in the programming area.

3:40PM PT WE is on Highlights. Confusing but Randall was reassuring!🇨🇦

{4:22 pm PSDT} OK, so now I’m wholly confused . . . the red button indicating “live” is lit . . . but, am I looking at a highlight reel? This is getting both confusing and frustrating. Maybe there’s a live feed from the actual cam on the IWS site.

Ditto on “wholly confused”. I guess this may be one of those stories where you never get to see the ending…:(

Or like one of those mysteries that never gets solved – grrrrr

So, if the current date and time is shown in the lower right hand corner of the open pane, then it’s “live” . . . right? If there is no date and time and video is being shown, it’s recorded. Can someone confirm?

WE end is back live now…1:08 pm PST. Chick (Owte) is on the nest…I have not seen much wingersizing from her but, she should be nearing fledge soon.

Thanks for the heads up! Good to see the live feed again and to know that Owte is still on the nest.

Comment on West End nest: a few days ago I patched into the site and tried to access the live feed on WE. Instead there was video of an empty nest (live or not, I don’t know) . . . I then wondered whether Owte was “branching” in the area around the nest or whether she had fledged. The image on the WEO cam didn’t provide the answer since the angle of view was off and did not encompass the nest area. Shortly thereafter, the feed on the WE cam became the early part of the season video that we’re… Read more »

So – feeling very stupid here – but where is the West End kiddo??? I watched the nest while it was still daylight & didn’t see her. Has she fledged????? I found it rather difficult this season to keep track of eagle (and fellow nest ranger as well) stuff here this season but also realize I haven’t been as engaged. I concur with Kathy & Randall (their posts below) about missing “the way we were” during seasons gone by. I guess everything changes with time & other influences – sigh. So, did I miss news about a WE fledge????

Good question. It’s 08:33 PT and now we have a rerun on screen. Hoping Eaglet is sitting off camera but Oh dear. We need info don’t we?🇨🇦
