Reader Dom called my attention to this video showing a mated pair of peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) who seem to be nesting in Norwich Cathedral. I’ve never actually heard them call, but listen to the cacophony as they talk to each other. They sound like penguins!

There are two birdcams of interest today. First, a Great Horned Owl pair in Savannah, Georgia (Bubo viginianus), has laid several eggs and the first owlet will probably hatch today, as there’s a pip out of the egg already. This YouTube video should show you the live action; the site is hosted by the Skidaway […]

Now that we have the GoPro camera (a great invention, whose only downside may be the tendency of people to care more about the video than the experience), we’re going to see a whole lot more video closeups of animals in the wild. Here’s one by photographer Chris Bray with the following information (among other […]
For some reason I don’t understand, photobombs by rodents are one of the most appealing things on the internet, drawing far more attention than, say, cat or dog photobombs. Perhaps it’s that adorable rodent face with its bulbous nose magnified by the camera. That, for example, may explain this old chestnut, perhaps the best—and certainly […]
Who doesn’t love puffins? Reader Amy called my attention to a PuffinCam, which follows the doings of one Phoebe the Puffin on Seal Island, Maine, a famous birding site. The cam is in her burrow, and she appears to be sitting on one egg. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a baby puffin, so this bears […]
[JAC note: I’m not really fond of posting pictures of death and depredation in nature, but, hey, that’s biology folks! You can’t have the squee without the squalling.] by Matthew Cobb The BBC’s annual three week-long nature extravaganza, Springwatch, is starting its final week. One of the highlights last week was the antics of Grub, a […]
Over at the Fargo FalconCam, mom or pop has just caught a bird and brought it in, deftly dissecting it and feeding it to the chicks. Don’t miss it. The chicks are still fluffballs but are getting big and noisy. Don’t miss the two archived clips below the live stream.
There are two juvenile squirrels, but I haven’t been able to photograph them together. Here’s Tufty E enjoying a repast of sunflower seeds. Check out his magnificent tuft! It’s interesting to see that the pattern of ticking in the fur gives their tails a stripey appearance. If it has an adaptive significance, I don’t know […]
