Watch the Ospreys and Peregrines!

Posted by Bob Lefebvre

The weather may still be a little closer to winter conditions than to spring, but now the Ospreys and the Peregrine Falcons are back, and you can watch them at their nests from the comfort of your home.

The first Peregrine returned to the University of Calgary campus on March 31, 2014. You can watch a live feed from the nest camera here: U of C Falcons .

The first Osprey was reported at the platform by the Calgary Zoo on April 17. You can see the live feed here: Zoo Osprey .

So far there hasn’t been much activity at the nests, but once the females are on the eggs it’s a lot of fun to check regularly and see the feeding activity, the hatching of the eggs, and the growth of the chicks.

There will be a link to these cameras on the right-hand sidebar of the blog throughout the nesting season so you can check on them regularly.

  1. I am still waiting for my beautiful, gentle osprey friend, Ozzy. His summer home is along the Bow River. I really hope that he is o.k. I have known Ozzy for 3 years now.

  2. Hi there. The first photo is actually of a Prairie Falcon (note the white supercilium among other features).
