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 .

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.
