Thread subject: Osprey webcam watching
||05/09/05 07:24 am
||Well I'm watching three nests at once just now, "ours", the Woods Hole one and the Connecticut Audubon one. All three look so similar with the female sitting quietly on the eggs, keeping watch and a gentle breeze blowing, shifting around the smaller twigs in the nests. It is all so calm and we, together with the birds, have this feeling of waiting for something to happen and soon it will we hope.

Pam, a friend of mine sent me some pics she captured from a peregrine falcon cam in Pennsylvania. So far, there are 3 brand new chicks and they are SOOOO cute!! I will have to get the exact url again. I'll post it later

||Shelley, thanks for that link. That is a very good streaming video cam on the peregrine and three new chicks. When I looked in Mom arrived with her prey to feed the babies. Difficult to see what it was but looked like a bird. What a noisy place for the nest, I suppose all the sound filters upwards but it sounds pretty near a railway. Have now put it on my favourites ( an extremely rapidly growing list I have to add).

||Thanks Shelley...I enjoyed watching the falcon chicks. Did you notice that one of the adults ate the shell? A good source of calcium being recycled :-)
