It’s March, which means it’s again the time of year when I give a little plug for my favorite nestcam website.Earlier this month, the nestcams over at the Dutch site Beleef de Lente started up for the spring nesting season.The project “Falcons for everyone” was set up in association with the OCWB in 2005.Peregrines on the Electrabel nuclear power station in Doel (Antwerp) On this website you can watch the falcons that nest in one of the nest-boxes that Electrabel mounted on the walls of the cooling towers of the nuclear power station in Doel (Antwerp).Just as good is the accompanying audio, which provides white noise to end all white noise.10.Whale watching Beluga whales — white whales — can grow up to 3,500 pounds.Inside the nesting box, the two birds have already produced three reddish-brown eggs.
Just this afternoon I had a look at the cams and saw a Peregrine Falcon snoozing outside the nest box, and both White Storks asleep on the nest. None of this picture-refreshes-every-10-seconds nonsense. But it is a different story when it pulls its wings and legs close to the body and collects the tail feathers in a perfect aerodynamic shape and plunges vertically towards the ground.Then it reaches speeds of over 300 kilometres per hour, faster than any other animal in the world.This view from the famed Golden Dome gives you a heavenly view of Notre Dame's campus in South Bend, Ind. Like waiting around forever at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Be a Beatle The people in this cam, active night and day, aren't losers.What prompted the bureaucrats of Delaware's DMV to mount several live cams is a mystery, but watch the losers. But they are often taking their lives in their hands, all to recreate an iconic Beatles LP cover.
