Pete 5/12/17 Finally – The 2017 Starr Ranch Birdathon Recap is done! The cost of cams and other hardware, plus the streaming are just a part of the expense of keeping everything running at Starr Ranch.
As usual, Steve did a great write up – including some really “punny” groaners… As the Recap mentions I’ll be sending emails to all who pledged with links on how to fulfill your pledge, give me your T-shirt info, and have another shot at guessing the 100th species we tallied, because no one got it. We have to annually raise about 5,000 to make it all happen. Pete 04/12/17 I was pulling in some loose ends of things I needed to get done on Starr Ranch before heading off to MI early tomorrow to do my annual inspection and repair of Osprey platforms on Fletcher Pond, near Alpena/Hillman.

Check out this 2 min clip from around 3PM on May 23rd of how fast they got to work. Pete 5/15/17 Wynne kindly (and gently) let me now that Steve mentioned the 100th Birdtahon species in his recap. Pete 05/14/17 Hmmmm, it appears the LED’s that provide the night time infrared view of the cavity are no longer working. Pete 4/21/16 I think you all know that I don’t often make a pitch for support.
So, once the BNOW fledglings are no longer returning to the cavity and it’s vacant for a while – which is what typically and eventually happens – I will go up there and install a new camera (the one that’s there is REALLY old), In the meantime, the cavity is being partially “lit up” by the infrared LED’s from the PTZ cam, so that’s why you can still see a little bit there at night. However, as we approach the end of April, the “2017 Starr Ranch Birdathon Month”, I’m really hoping you will consider making a pledge.
In June of last year, on a whim and mostly out of boredom, Abuhamdeh mounted his phone next to the register and began to broadcast his day on You Now, a live streaming service. People would walk up and pay, he would ring them up, and then as they left, nail them with a zinger spoken to the camera. But I was nervous, I felt like there were people watching. It was weird.” After a few weeks of broadcasting he began to find his rhythm.If a customer was in on the joke, Abuhamdeh would banter with them a bit.But new mobile apps like Meerkat are changing that.Twitter drew major media attention for this mobile broadcasting trend in March 2015 when it announced it was buying Periscope, one of the new mobile apps for live streaming video.Now I make more every month on You Now than I do from my work at the store,” Abuhamdeh tells me. We become friends.” A couple of times he’s broadcast from his bedroom while sleeping. They want to see everything that you do.” You Now launched back in September of 2012, but for its first year and a half struggled to find traction.
