emc and all  The view on the ustream app on my iphone is very good!!!  And the chat works well.  It doesn't seem to be on the justin tv app yet.  Emc, if you watch using the ustream app instead of skyfire, it loads right away.  Hi, Nancy.

We have a good zoomie, for our first views.  Getting good focus on the birds isn't easy

Yeah, it looks like the same light, EMC.  I will be torn at 9:30 when it is safari time... guess I will be multi-watching for a while! :ecwink

Agree about not missing, emc.  Glad it is working well with skyfire, too!

There are some doves walking on the grey roof.  Earlier they were showing something underneath ..  but I didn't catch that in time to figure it out. Used to see mongoose there before..
