    it's a black and white feed during the nighttime there... most low-light cameras switch to b/w

    Charles of Cornell Lab posted an update yesterday regarding the feed.

    The camera needs to be replaced because of infrared filter issues. The new camera should arrive in Panama about the middle of next week, and it will be another day or two to get it swapped out.

    Then we can see in color again!

    Wondering what was up. Miss the color. And put out more bananas, I want to see the Toucans again.

    For those who don't know, Cornell Labs is probably the most important bird research intuition in the United States and one of the leaders in the world. Cornell Labs, apart from this bird cam does lots of other things like migration tracking and population trends through ebird, and North America bird ID through All About Birds... and yes, some of my Songbird ReMix income goes to helping them every year (as well as Audubon). If you want to donate to them directly, here's the link.

    As for updates on my re-releases and new products... Santa should be dropping those Vultures and Condors soon, as well as my Potoos. If things go well on my end, you might be see a Nature's Wonders item by year end (or close to it)... Central and South American Lizards to keep your Potoos company.

    That's what I like about them. That pose they take makes my neck hurt just looking at them.

    Hey Ken, are those "perches" you have them on in the promos part of your Perching Places set? I have that set, but haven't checked it out lately.

    If not, have you any plans of releasing them, or are they part of one of your Habitat sets. I have those too, but don't recall anything like those among them.

    Well done Ken. You've knocked another out of the park.

    Lizard is looking amazing as well.

    Love it.

    By the way that Panama Fruit Feeder Cam is still showing black and white. Looking forward to their new fix to come.

    Me too Chris!

    And I'm also looking forward to Ken's Central & South American Lizards to add to my Potoo renders!

    Yes, I've noticed that too. When I first started checking it, it was only black & white at night, but full color during the day. I hope they get it fixed soon-ish.

    While I have used some of "Perching Places" props for the Potoo renders here the majority have come from other artists. I use DinoRaul's "Trees201204" and "Trees201206" a lot in renders (both found at Rendo). Perching Places is on my list to update with the rest of the SBRM sets. I may end up doing my own snag/tree set maybe in time for April's Audubon event but I'll need to be ahead of myself on updates and the peafowl for that to happen-- so don't get your hopes up.

    Everyone... Thank you for all the comments on my latest set!

    Oh I'll wait eagerly, but don't rush the updates and peafowl (which I'm also waiting for) on my account. ;)

    Good news! The Panama Fruit Feeder has gotten it's new camera, and now it's in full color even at night! :D

    I wonder if the feed was showing highlights when you checked Miss B.

    It's still been colorless every time I've checked, and all the photos posted on their feed have also been colorless ... except those people have hand colored.

    However ... Charles posted two days ago the new camera had arrived, and they hope to have the new camera installed before the New Year. Soo ... count down to New Years!!!

    Funny you should mention that, as I was thinking the same thing just now when I checked, because not only was it in full color, that swinging vine, and the water feeder, were both absent from that camera, so more than likely an earlier "preview", or a totally different camera.
