Two Interesting Wildlife Cams

Two cams I want to share. First is the Heber osprey nest.  
Update: three eggs in nest, appearance dates - 4/16, 4/18, 4/?
Incubation period for osprey ... 35 - 40 days
Fledge period for osprey ... 7 - 8 weeks


Video streaming by Ustream

Second is a red-tailed hawk in Ithaca, NY. One of the three eggs has hatched! The other two should be within days.

There is a lovely "hawk cam" from the University of Wisconsin-Madison -- below is the link. Three babies have recently hatched.

I just checked the osprey cam this morning and the picture is much better--closer and clearer. Thanks to whoever did that :)

Oh yes, Felicia, its much better. Now it will be so fun watching the hatches.

Earlier this afternoon (May 3), I discussed the Heber osprey cam pair with Mr. Reid. When I inquired about his record of egg appearance, he responded that he noted (and recorded) the dates as: April 15, April 16 & April 17, one egg each date.

Hi. Just found your blog. I love the Salt Lake falcons, I've been watching them a few years now.

Have you ever surfed ustream for other bird cams? They certainly have a lot. My favorite is an Anna's hummingbird in California who successfully raised an orphaned hummingbird that was not her own last year. She raised him with two of her own babies after he was put in her nest as a rescue effort and all 3 survived. She's currently working on her 2nd nest of the summer. That link is Try also searching for Pete's Pond or Djuma on Ustream, and you will find webcams set up at ponds in Botswana and South Africa that record passing by leopards, lions, elephants, giraffes, etc.

Sorry I sounded like an ad for Ustream there, these are just fun places to hang out and related to wildlife cams, so I thought I would mention them if anyone is interested.

Great news! Larry Reid reported to me that he was able to detect two (2) young-of-the-year osprey on Tuesday, May 22. Waiting to see if the remaining, third egg hatches out as well.
