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.
- Peregrines — only a few of the many, many nestcams
- University of Pittsburgh (of course!)
- Wilmington, Delaware
- Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: DEP Rachel Carson Building
- Rochester, New York (5 cameras on the nest)
- Ohio: Cleveland: Terminal Tower and Columbus: Rhodes State Office Tower
- University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh
- Nebraska: State Capitol in Lincoln, Woodmen Tower in Omaha
- San Francisco, California via SCPBRG (uses Quicktime)
- Canada: Selection of cameras via the Canadian Peregrine Foundation (The text may say 2011 but these are 2012 nests!)
- Bald Eagles
- Red-tailed Hawks
- Other Species
- Great Blue Heron, Cornell University, All About Birds
- Osprey, Dunedin, Florida
- Great Horned Owls via Xcel Energy (includes additional webcams links)
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.
