Once I decide on what I'm going to post I recheck any links in it to make sure they haven't disappeared. Which is what I did with this one. Still there -- no problem. So I write up the piece and then triple check the link. Gone.
Well, duh. It's an outdoor webcam in Hornby Island, British Columbia that's apparently turned off at night, because there's, like, nothing to see.
Still, if you happen across this at more congenial (i.e., daylight) hours you might want to give it a click. (You have to hit the play button to start it.) It's full streaming video of a bald eagle in its nest, doing eagly things like grooming itself and fixing intruders (that would be you) with a baleful eye.
Of course, it could also be doing eagly things like tearing at the corpse of a small dog, clutched in its blood-stained talons.
So clicker (and/or small dogs) beware.
