Each spring, a pair of American Kestrels raises a family inside a nestbox mounted at our World Center for Birds of Prey overlooking Boise, Idaho. Thanks to a webcam in the nestbox, you can follow the daily lives of these fascinating falcons. Most years the wecam is live from late March to June or July.
Bosch Security Systems USA is sponsoring the American Kestrel Partnership and generously donated the high-definition cameras we use. The cameras reveal activity both inside and outside the box, such as adults exchanging prey and defending their nest from trespassers, and fledglings learning to fly, hunt, and survive in their dangerous new world.
