Peregrine Falcon Web Cam

       I have just put on a link to a Peregrine Falcon nest. The nest is one placed on the top of a 100m (330 ft) tower in Red Deer Alberta. This is the third year the web cam has been placed on the tower. The first year three eggs hatched and all three birds fledged. Last year none of the eggs hatched and later in the summer the female was found dead under the tower. It is suspected that she succumbed due to a poison. Tests are being done on the body to see if it was poison and if so what poison.

     Now, the link for the Owl web cam has not been successful. This year the owls did not choose the nest. That site is showing still pictures from last year's web cam and also still pictures from the beaver web cam.

      Enjoy the season watching the web cam.


  1. Very interesting! Our local botanical gardens has an eagle cam where we have been able to watch the babies. This past year the mother was killed by an airplane - the gardens adjoin the airport - and the babies had to be sent to a wildlife rehab center to be raised until they could be released.

  2. I'm not a big watcher of web cams but I know people who are avid fans them.

  3. I know I would spend far too much time watching them if I gave it any longer than a quick peek!

  4. Yes some people become obsessed with watching. There's a comment part to the web cam and some people respond to every move a bird makes.
