The fluidity of the video image on your screen is determined by many factors, including the upload speed of the Internet Provider we use to send the cam signal out (we are using the maximum bandwidth that our provider can give us, but it fluctuates at times), how fast Internet is running between the camera source and your computer (there are several spots along the way where a signal can be disrupted), the download speed of your internet service, and the processor speed of your computer. Our goal is to provide the best viewing experience possible, and we hope that you enjoy watching !

At night, an infrared light is turned on. Falcons and Humans cannot see this light - it is outside their visible spectrum of light. The infrared light is converted into visible light by the camera (but only in black and white), we see the light because it has been converted by the camera.

We have sound and remember you can hover over bottom right side of stream video to enlarge to full screen.

Our 2 nest boxes are constructed from grade 1 pine. The bottom of  H.M.K.T.  (heavy metal kestrel tree) nest box is situated approximately 168 inches above ground which makes the entrance hole about 182 inches above ground. This metal wonder was constructed after a heavy wind knocked down the original tree. It has the ability to raise and lower the nest box via a crank system from the ground. Some of the original tree branches were used for hunting & perching. The other nest box Kestrel 2 nest box bottom is approximately 126 inches above ground which makes the entrance hole approximately 140 inches above ground. The entrance hole is 3 inches tall & 4 inches wide on each nest box. Kestrel 2 box is on a fixed pole and must be accessed with a ladder. They are approximately 100 feet from each other.

       During daylight hours the camera quality may change due to lighting conditions, such as clouds, sunlight & even when the Kestrels are blocking the door way of the nest box. This all will compromise the picture quality due to the only source of light being blocked.
