Nestcam Round-Up

Nesting season is coming fast.  Some raptors have already laid eggs so it’s time to start watching the nestcams for a window on the family lives of birds.

Here’s a selection of my favorites for your viewing pleasure.  In fact there so many nestcams online now that I can’t possibly list them all.

This list is just the tip of the iceberg.  If you have a favorite nestcam post it in Comments below.

  1. This is the Eagle cam at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, MD. Since I grew up on the Maryland Eastern Shore, I enjoy seeing the two nest cams in this area. a link on the eagle site takes you to an osprey cam where you can often see the birds bringing fish to the nest. This nest is populated later in the season from the Eagles.

  2. Can they please clean off the camera at the falcon nest on the Cathedral of Learning? Also are you going to follow the eagle nest in the Hays area of Pgh?

    1. Pitt camera: No we can’t go out to the nest to clean the camera. It is way too close to egg-laying time. Human access to the nest area ended at the end of January.

  3. Thank you for the reply about the camera..I would love to see some photos if possible of the eagle nest in Hays area…will you be doing any of that?

  4. Here is the website for the San Francisco Peregrines at the PS&G building. She has laid at least 3 eggs & they should start hatching around 3/26. I believe that they even allow you to control the camera facing the nestbox for a donation. I’m not sure how many minutes you get though. Once they are ready to fledge you can watch them fly off of the building as well since the camera can rotate & they are near the ledge. You can even see the Golden Gate Bridge when the camera is facing that way
