Canadian Neighbors


A camera was installed on the U of Calgary peregrines in the early 1990s. That camera was not only the first webcam on a peregrine nest anywhere, it was the first webcam on any bird nest in the world. There are nine other webcams in Eastern Canada.
There are now more than forty-five pairs of Peregrine Falcons across Alberta, including one pair nesting atop the Clinical Sciences building on the University of Alberta campus. There are three webcams focused on the Peregrine nest box, one with an outdoor view of the nest box from the side, one with an outdoor view of the nest box from the front and one on the box, which provides a view of the nest inside.
Although the different cams may or may not have sound … they have used different colored bands and some radio transmitters for locating their fledglings.
