The Invisible Eagle Eye Cam

I was sent a link to the Eagle Eye Cam, live footage of an Eagle’s nest. I only know that’s what it is, because I asked the sender of the message. What I see here on my browser – Firefox on Linux – is a large white patch on the page and lots of adverts.

I have gone out of my way to install RealPlayer and Flash media players on my system, but it appears that to see Eagles, one must be using a proprietary Microsoft product, only available for Microsoft platforms. Hey, what a great site it must be! Monopolistic and socially exclusive! Probably find that the Eagle signed a contract with MSN.

I’ll stick to looking out of the window at our resident kestrels (Ginger and Mrs Ginger), in their constant (but futile) attempts to control our local mouse population.
