 :eclove It was a wonderful day! The posts by Doug delighted everyone and the Hornbys (and Wilson) were spectacular.

Thank you for the pictures and videos; what a lot of time they must have taken.  :bow

The complete skeleton of the opossum is in clear view in the nest.  Interesting, but I hope they pitch it overboard sometime soon.  :ecsmile

Sharing 'elevenses' (or a light lunch)!  :eclol



Actually - dad appears to be doing two things at once - holding onto 'Wilson' and some stick handling!   :mhihi

Hello All, I am so excited that our Hornby nest is live again, and this brand new forum has been created!

That said, who is "Wilson"? :puzzled2

When those of us who watched the nest and commented in the Hornby chatroom earlier in the season, we  (not sure who it was now, but probably AJL) 'Christened' any opossum remains that were brought into the nest 'Wilson'.  :mhihi

Hi Everyone,    It's like a space ship here now, with all of Raptormen's equipment lined up with our own TV, the two TVs for the cameras, and our computer.  I like to sneak out here in the middle of the night just to see all the lights (red, green and blue) blinking, flashing or glowing in the dark.  And then, there is the new control button to switch from one camera to the other.

I feel that I should dress up in in a space suit complete with a glass-domed helmet, but will have to do with a bicycle helmet Im afraid.

I've spent the morning cleaning up my desk and computer desk, after a month's neglect.  Then pay off bills.                 Doug

That's a great photo, RaptorMan.  And I got a chuckle out of Doug's post.  I can just picture you sneaking around in the dark, looking at all the lights!  Sometimes when I walk by my office at night I get a similar feeling seeing the various lights flashing.

I wish someone would come and do the same for me, Doug.  I have a lot of unopened envelopes too!  :mconfused
