Peregrine Falcons- De Mortel, The Netherlands
« on: March 08, 2010, 12:33:27 AM »
We have seen some incredible stories unfold here over the years. There were 2 live streaming cams, both with sound and a third cam that was transmitting still images, on the top of a tower in Holland. The cams have been on and off over the years and have been off for quite a few months recently. However, due to some behind the scenes negotiations one of the cams is transmitting once more, but for now only 10-second update images. (With thanks to Dutch Eagle Fan for the link which she posted on the Maine Bald Eagle Forum.)

With our thanks and appreciation to Alticam

Still some work to be done, so it's possible that sometimes the site is temporarily not available.

Laura,  thanks for this link!  I had read elsewhere that the cams would not be available at all this year, so it's great to know that something will be available.

Nancy, thanks for mentioning this cam on the thread for the cam on the Gulf Tower in Pittsburgh PA.

I hope the De Mortel Peregrines have a good season; without too much drama.

I just took these.  As the photos say it is 8:39 a.m. Sun. there and very misty.

I am currently checking that Wildlife Cam links listed are valid.   This link is currently working, but with a small bird. Hopefully the peregrine falcons will be shown when they return later in the year.

Thank you BBE for all you're doing checking the links. I'll send a PM to Dutch Eagle Fan as she is more aware of any news on this cam.

Video:  Dad Steps In

Just after dawn, Dad arrives to give S2 a break. He settles down on the eggs and she leaves for almost two hours. When she returns, she takes off again!

Note that the infrared nest box camera changes from black and white to color.

This is great news, thank you DEF. Is there live streaming from the cam on the roof also or just inside the box?

Video:  I Need to Stretch My Wings


Recorded 8 AM, local time

As they take turns incubating, we can clearly see S2 & Pa's four eggs. The male is called the tiercel and the female is called the falcon.

Falco peregrinus

Dutch name: Slechtvalk

Eggs laid:
1st egg: 3/15
2nd egg: 3/17
3rd egg: 3/20
4th egg: 3/22

Expected hatching to begin: 29 -- 33 days after eggs are laid

I haven't been able to keep in touch with de Mortel this year.  Has anything much happened.  Shouldn't the eggs be hatching any time now.
