Spring nest cam time again!

My favorite nest cams over at the Dutch site Beleef de Lente start streaming today. For the season it looks like they’ll have cameras on Common Kestrel (Torenvalk), Little Owl (Steenuil), Great Tit (Koolmees), White Stork (Ooievaar), Barn Swallow (Boerenzwaluw), Eurasian Nuthatch (Boomklever), Eurasian Eagle-owl (Oehoe) (!!), and Barn Owl (Kerkuil). Those last two are new for this year and I’m really looking forward to peeking in on the Eagle-owl in the coming weeks.

Usually at least a few of the nests have multiple live cameras going, and highlight videos are archived for later viewing (Iets gemist?). Nest milestones like the date of each egg and hatching are noted too (Hoogtepunten).

Even if you don’t read Dutch, the streaming cams are fun to watch and the archived clips are usually neat.

Are you looking forward to watching a nest cam this season? Do you have a favorite live streaming nest cam website? Please let me know in the comments!

Share the birds, share the love!

    I watch the Eagles in Norfolk for the past 4 years.
    Last year I started watching the Dutch site. The Steenuil and Slechtvalk were my favorite.
    They are not carry the Slechtvalk this year. Do you know how I could see them or anything as good as they were.
    Thanks, J.S.

    Hi J.S., there are a lot of Peregrine Falcon nestcams out there. My favorite is the Rochester Falconcam; the male (Archer) just returned to the area yesterday so hopefully there will be eggs soon. The cam is at http://rfalconcam.com/rfc-main/mainView.php. It’s not live streaming but if you check Google for Peregrine cams I bet you’ll find some to watch. 🙂

    I am watching the eagles in Sidney also the little owl at the beleff as well wonder why the little owl mate dont help her get the doves out, and they could just remove the doves and give them a new house but they said they cant interfier, however they did interfier when they put the box up in the first place, if it was my box the doves would be put in a new box
