Two cameras, one over the nest and one on the ground, live stream what’s happening at the Boulder County Fairground’s nest, just east of the Cattail Pond. Camera one, the main camera over the nest, began experiencing technical difficulties on April 8.
Longmont’s main osprey nest camera is working once again.
Nik Brockman, Boulder County Park and Open Space web administrator, has been working to fix the issues ever since. Last month, he said it was likely that the camera wouldn’t be repaired until after the birds migrated south, because he didn’t want to disturb the resident ospreys by getting too close to the camera.
This week, there was a breakthrough.
“I was able to get the camera working again on Thursday afternoon,” Brockman wrote in an email. “I switched the power injector for camera #1 and that seems to have fixed the issue.”
The power injector, the component that supplies power to the camera, is located about 100 feet from the nest. Brockman said he did check and replace the power injector before, but nothing changed.
“But for whatever reason, the adapter I tried yesterday afternoon worked (and whatever I tried before didn’t),” he wrote. “It is a finicky system. I’m just hoping it keeps working until the chicks hatch which could be as early as May 23 (which is 40 days after the first egg was laid).”
