Salt Lake City Kestrels

The cam is now live (http://www.imede.com/kestrel/index.html).

No one was home just now, but the kestrels have been visiting. This shot from a few days ago was posted on the cam site.

:14val: Sometimes the Starr Ranch kestrel cam is fine, other times it's not. It's just a matter of luck whether it appears or not.

There are now 5 eggs in the nest! The kestrels were always on the eggs the past few days, so I never knew how many eggs were there.

Boise cam is up and live, I can't remember if there was sound last year but there is now. Not the best but something.

03/28/2016:

Hello and welcome to the 2016 KestrelCam season! We are pleased to be hosting this view into a kestrel's nesting world once again. If you notice technical issues with streaming, please use the contact staff form to get quick contact with our website admin.

The male and female in the nest box are not banded this year, and this year's male has far less black spotting on his plumage than last year's. Right now, the female is in the egg-laying stage. It is normal for American Kestrels to lay one egg every other day, and the average clutch size is 4-5 eggs.

The first egg was spotted in the morning on March 23rd. The second made an appearance on Friday, March 25th. Last night, the third egg appeared on Easter Sunday - our own little Easter egg hunt! Keep an eye out to catch that fourth one tonight or on Tuesday.


Many folks worry about eggs left unattended during the egg-laying period. American Kestrels typically do not start fully incubating their clutch until all eggs are laid, which helps the nestlings hatch closer to the same time. Unattended eggs at this stage are not in danger of perishing. Feel free to ask or discuss other questions in the forums from the link above!

KF - Thanks for the great news about the Boise cam being live and with 3 eggs already. There's probably a 4th egg already, but mom is keeping them covered up at the moment.

I still haven't seen the eggs here. But it's now official, according to the web site, that the Boise kestrels have 5 eggs in their nest.

News from the Nebraska web site . . .

No kestrelcam in 2016

April 7, 2016
Even though our American Kestrels are back this year and will be laying eggs soon, we will be unable to provide streaming video of them this year. […]

Starr Ranch - At least 2 hatches here, but I couldn't get a good picture of the little chicks under the female.

I forgot to post that Pawnee is live again. Found it this afternoon. Nice and clean but no Kestrels yet.
