The common kestels Castro and Laurentia have nested in the box we installed on a building of the University of Rome “Sapienza”, and that has been used by the peregrines Agar and Vento for many years. In May 2019, when the nestbox seemed to have been abandoned, these two kestrels laid their first egg. This webcam is active thanks to the collaboration with the Dept. of Economics.
Since 2004 Ornis italica, the association of ornithologists running the Birdcam.it project, is in charge of installing and maintaining webcams on the nests of wild birds. All webcams broadcast to www.birdcam.it.
