Two of them are sitting on the ledge looking at the world and sorting out their feathers at the moment.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Arghhhh can anyone help a computer illiterate?

I have a Mac OS X and when I click the link it says Missing Plug-In. So I clicked Missing Plug-In, got redirected to this page, downloaded the contents (which is called WMV, and opens up Quicktime Player) and nothing happens.

On Quicktime, I've gone to File > Open URL and typed in the web address, but only a black screen appears.

Would love to be able to watch!!

If you click on the Mac Users link below the two main links it takes you to this page for the plug-in. That may help.

One Kestrel is in the box now.

Re: Kestrel Webcam

For those interested, here are more webcams, one of an Eagle owl!
They are in the Netherlands, the link is through Birdlife International

http://www.beleefdelente.nl/

Pictures of the birds should speak for themselves, just in case, "oehoe" is dutch for Eagle Owl, "Slechtvalk" is Peregrine falcon

Enjoy!

That's the plug-in I've downloaded already (downloaded it again from this site to be doubly sure). No luck

Re: Kestrel Webcam

I watch the Decorah eagles live webcam, they were skirted by tornadoes, the wind was high so the parents plumped up the walls of the nest to guard the eaglets. they are very experienced parents. they have put up with these winds for about a month.

WIND!



Laying the egg on a snowy night



Fixing the nest for wind-noisy babies!

Re: Kestrel Webcam

Both parent eagles are having to sit on the nest to cover the eaglets, it is snowing the poor things are wet.

Forgive my ignorance but- is it possible for a bird to have an identical twin or are they all fraternal?

They might look fluffy and cute, but I can tell you from hands-on experience, they bite and claw. and the alarm calls they give are absolutely deafening.
I suppose that teaches me not to ring them and research them, but well...
