Webcam Round-up, March 2012

Published by at 7:36 am under Peregrines

Dorothy and E2 have been incubating their eggs since March 25. Except for moments like this when they trade incubation duty, watching the falconcam can be pretty boring so you might want to keep several nestcams open at the same time to keep the action fresh.

Many of you have sent links to the other webcams you’re watching.  Here are just a few of the webcams viewing active nests right now.  Some are in different time zones so you’ll get to watch the sun rise and set across the continent.

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg!  There are more webcams than I can ever list and new ones announced every day as nesting season begins for more species.

Do you have a favorite webcam I didn’t list here?  Share it by posting a comment with the link.

    Here is an eagle cam at Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia. Usually eggs would have hatched by now. Last year the female eagle was killed by an airplane. There have been a few females visiting the nest. The history of the nest and a link to the cam can be found on the following link:

    I forgot to add that I haven’t seen any eggs yet but there are some stunning pics in the slide show.

    Here is a link I watch often from the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, MD on the DelMarVa peninsula.

    There is an eagle cam and an Osprey Cam. I like the osprey especially because they always bring fish to the nest and it is easy to see the food. As for the eagle this year, the chicks were killed, probably by a competing eagle, and there is no longer a “family” there. The galleries if both show recent activity. Eagles may still lay a new clutch but that is becoming less likely as time goes on.

    This website has several variations of some webcams. I love watching the eaglets right now. Happy viewing. :)

    Here’s one of a goose… it’s just so darn cute… the goose chose a potted plant container on someone’s deck! Apparently in prior years the goose chose a lawn chair but tore it to shreds so the owner threw it away… but that did not deter the goose!

    the webcam in SF shows the baby chicks-they hatched yesterday & today. I just watched DAD feeding the chicks. The webcam is real close so you get a really good look at the chicks & feeding time but you may have to download the webcam so you can view it.
