Undaunted by the previous 2 attempts to share this video of Ralph Meier's, on Tweeters, I am now trying a different link and hope it will 'fly'. If any of you still can't see the video, write to me and I'll send you a link directly - that has worked for a couple of people so far.

Here also is something I sent to a "Tweet" who was worried that the video would bring problems for the raptors it showcases. I have edited the message a bit from the original:

These nests are extremely inaccessible by humans - can only be viewed from pullouts along Canyon Rd. and through a scope or super camera. These birds nest on cliffs across the Yakima River to the west, on cliffs very far away and likely on private property. Ralph's done such videos before and, to my knowledge, there's been no or little interference with the birds. These also are very inexact directions - one has to go there and do one's own searches - I know, because I have spent many a trip looking at areas Ralph suggested, but I did finally find a few of them (in the past few years). Ralph gives us a start and we have to do the rest and scout for ourselves.
