Peregrine Web Cam Link

       I have just set up a peregrine web cam link on my blog. So click on the link and it will take you to the peregrine web cam.

       This year we have set up a much better system so that you can watch a peregrine nest located on the top of the 101 m Telus Tower at Red Deer Alberta. We have installed 4 cameras this year. One camera is outside the box so that you can see the area outside the nest box. Last your you could tell that something was outside the box by the behavior of the birds inside. This year when the birds are changing sitting on the nest you will be able to see them outside the box. A second camera is capable of night vision so that you can see what goes on in the box at night. There are two regular cameras in the box so that we get more of a 3 D effect.

       So whenever you watch the web cam this year you will get a much better view. The color is also much better.

       So enjoy watching the peregrine falcons this year! They are an awesome bird.


  1. Thanks, Red. I know very little about peregrines, so this will be a good way to learn more about them.

  2. Peregrine's are fascinating as they are the fastest animal in the world in their dive. They are also a poster bird as they almost went extinct because of DDT. A recovery plan was made and paid off as they are ready to be taken off the endangered list. Don't get obsessed with the web cam though. Some people spend an enormous amount of time watching the web cam.
