Cathedral Cove, Anacapa Peregrine Falcons, CA - 2018

Post by JudyB » Sun Mar 25, 2018 8:18 am

Thanks to forum member Raffs for finding this cam, and to the Institute for Wildlife Studies and Explore.org for providing the cam!

Cam Link via Explore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybhxpAAd6ho or https://explore.org/livecams/falcons/pe ... on-anacapa

Cam Link via IWS: http://www.iws.org/cathedralcove_youtube.html

This falcon nest is located in the Cathedral Cove area of Anacapa Island off the coast of Southern California. The Institute for Wildlife Studies has been observing the falcons there since 2013, and you can find the history of the nest territory here - http://www.iws.org/CC_History.html. According to the Institute for Wildlife Studies, this may be the first live peregrine cam on a completely natural nest site (no buildings or man-made nesting structures).

They laid their first egg March 24, and may lay up to three more eggs before they start to incubate them full-time.

Like Judy mention up, female laid first egg at 24 march, in early morning hours - around 3 AM. Second egg females usually lays after more/less 52 hours. So tomrrow morning she should lay second egg.
