We are also working with the Friends of Camas National Wildlife Refuge who have been setting up a Peregrine Falcon web camera in the refuge for live-streaming.
Once that goes online we will notify you so that you can watch that falcon family grow.
American Kestrels are a declining species throughout much of North America and your assistance to monitor them and provide observations through our interactive website is valuable in helping us to solve the mystery of their decline.
The kestrels have just begun investigating the nest for the season, so the camera will “go live” as soon as the first egg is laid.
We're not sure why it was repositioned and do not have control over that aspect of the set-up, but will do our best to switch it back quickly so that you can see the chicks again! June 2 You've probably started to notice that the chicks are not always in view of the camera now.
They've become much more active and mobile the past few days and now spend time running around the nest ledge.
It took us a while to get a good enough look to confirm four little heads, but we were finally able to this afternoon.
Please note that most of these cameras are NOT owned or controlled by weather USA (unless the name specifically says so) and you will have to visit the camera's website if you want more information about it.
Watch: Landslide sweeps over highway minutes after ... Internally decapitated boy making remarkable recovery.
We're keeping an eye out for others, but mom has been doing a really good job of incubating!
The other eggs should hatch at sometime in the next few days, so keep a lookout for them! When they hatch, they are covered with fluffy white down and have very large feet in proportion to their bodies, but in just 5-6 weeks, the falcons will be fully feathered and ready to fly.
