Just found this on the Ning site...

    Hi Folks, Just got on site to find and solve the issue.  We missed the hatch but the loons are swimming about as a family.  Thanks for all your support.  Hope this news meets you well.  Have a great day!  also a great visit to TOM wish I could make it.  Please post photos!


I am thrilled there was a hatch, but I can't even begin to express my disappointment at this unreliable cam and the lack of any information from BRI. I do understand that to stream a wildlife webcam in a remote location is extremely difficult and we all are loyal and only wishing to share, but it's the lack of communication and interaction which really confuses me. I'm feeling so sad to have not been able to hear and see this occasion again.  crying

I am beyond disappointed with regard to BRI ... as much as I hate to say it, they need to get out of the cam business ... they just don't know how to run a cam operation ... just ridiculous ... it's a joke.

... sorry that is the way I feel sigh2

BRI has gotten out of the cam  business .... probably a good thing as it always seemed a tremendous burden to them ..... but they continue their research, their strong point .... here is an article on their 'Restore the Call'  Program ... an effort to revive the loon population .....

Thank you Chris. Yes, maybe a burden to BRI running the cams, but I will always be grateful to them for the Peregrines, the Loons and of course the wonderful Maine Bald Eagle cam which I miss the most. I do wish them luck in all they do.
