Kestrel Box 2017 - Live Video from
Hawk Mountain Sanctuary

Our live webcam is back!

Welcome to our American kestrel webcam comment page!  This is where you have the opportunity to ask questions about what you are observing in the nest box.  An educator or a biologist will answer your question.  We will do our best to be prompt in answering questions, but please allow 24 hours for an answer.  Thanks for watching and fingers crossed for a pair of kestrels!

Cool... Can't wait to see who calls it home! What's the knocking noise?

The nest box is on the side of a horse barn. You could be hearing horses against the stalls or doors being blown open and close due to the wind. Thanks!

I can't wait until the kestrels move in. Thank you for setting up this camera. I love kestrels, but of course I would.I care for two hit by car kestrels in my raptor education program (google eyesinthesky.org).

Are there eggs? If so, when do you think they will hatch?

There are no eggs yet. Please visit our Facebook page to take part in our contest to guess when the first egg will be laid. You can't beat the prize!

The first egg has been laid! The female will wait to incubate the eggs until all of them have been laid-typically 3-5 eggs.

The second egg has been laid! The female has been incubating on and off, probably due to the colder wet weather. The male was in the box at 10:30 am today.
