Website Work today!

I will be trying to add https (security) to duluthharborcam.com today. This may result in not seeing pages for awhile and links not working.  Hopefully it goes ok, usually there are glitches along the way.  I will restore things by Monday if the site quits working.

Thank You!

Jeffery's opinion of medical masks!

Hi Folks, Jeffery the gull here,

So, I see some humans around the area wearing these cool looking masks and overheard one of them saying that these masks are for the birds. So I found one in a trash can and tried it on.  To tell you the truth, it doesn't fit well when you have no ears to hang it on and it slips down when flying. It also makes it hard to eat popcorn, so, forget it. 
 And where are all the tourists by they way, I am getting tired of seafood.

Jeff

Hi Folks, Fast Eddy the Falcon here. I stopped by to visit with Jeffery your seagull friend, but, he seemed quit upset that I was here, in fact they keep buzzing me. Must be that social distance requirement or something.
What an incredible sunrise this morning, God's handiwork never ceases to amaze me.
Well --- Stay safe, I'm going to go have some fun and scare some more of those pesky gulls.
