How could I not write up a falcon nest from my home state of Ohio? The nest is located in Columbus, Ohio at an office building. Not only can you check out these amazing birds, but you can learn all about them too!
The page will open right on the nest box cam, it should be playing automatically. If it isn’t and all you see is a black box, then the stream may not be available. Beneath the video area you can find links to the different programs that you can use to view the video in if you don’t have on installed already.
There is also a second cam to check out. To see a different view, click the LedgeCam link to the right of the video. The video will load where the other video was playing previously.
In the navigation box at the top left you’ll find links to Identifying Peregrines, Falcon Facts, Ohio’s Falcon Nesting Sites, and Tracking Columbus Falcons. I found the identification section to be particularly interesting, but that probably stems from bird spotting with my dad when I was young. He was always pointing out different birds and teaching us what their names were when we were kids.
The Falcon Facts section is also very cool. You’ll learn all about Peregrine Falcons from the different species of them to how they live to how they nest! Definitely check this section out!
