CAM LINK: Heidelberg

March 4, 2013
Thank you to Beth for posting the information below. I thought it interesting to include with the intitial post and be part of the "Heidelberg History". Gigi


FYI for Heidelberg Falcon Fans...
Peregrine Falcons in Heidelberg-Germany/Columbus-Ohio connection :loveshow:
Our Columbus-Ohio thread link...


Columbus-Ohio cam link...


This page was found in German.

Several years ago, because of the influence of an Ohio friend, Hans-Martin Gang, a peregrine falcon enthusiast in Germany watched the Columbus Falconcam with great interest. Having worked many years with cliff-nesting peregrines, Hans-Martin wanted to focus on city-dwelling falcons and install a peregrine nesting box on top of the historic Holy Spirit Church in Heidelberg. Through his Ohio friend he made contact with me (Donna D), asking for details on the design of our Columbus peregrine nesting box. I was pleased to provide technical advice to assist with his endeavor.

The connection to Columbus continues. After Hans-Martin installed his falcon nest box, it wasn't long until peregrines moved in. The adult female in Heidelberg was named "Aurora" after Columbus' 1st nesting female! Now, several years later, the Holy Spirit Church has successfully raised several broods of peregrines and this year they again have a webcam. Check out their website, including the "Questions & Answers" section where they explain the reason of naming their adult female "Aurora."

http://www.ag-wanderfalken.de/index.php ... &Itemid=74

Hans-Martin and I (Donna D) have developed a friendship and continue to "compare notes" each year on the success of our nesting falcons!


Info below posted on March 13, 2013 by Hans-Martin.
You want to know where JETTA, PERKEO and the young falcons perch, sleep, feed and watch the air-traffic of pigeons etc. ? Today I found a photo in our local newspaper "Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung" -done by the late photographer Stefan Kresin - from the top of the "Thick Tower" of Heidelberg Castle-ruin (mind that the wall of the tower is 6 mtrs. thick!): You see, the falcons can look down to the entrance of the nestbox in Holy-Spirit-Church-steeple and guard their territory in the Neckar-valley over the historic part of Heidelberg. Small photo: Thick Tower is broken Tower at right side of ruin...

Happy new year 2013!
I regret I am late! We started the NEW YEAR with an asado in Laguna Blanca, Araucania, Chile in the Andes and arrived home last weekend. Thank you all for keeping an eye on Heiliggeistkirche during my absence.
Both falcons sat on the steeple`s cross to welcome me when I went first time in this year near the church yesterday.
PERKEO seems to be on guard here every morning neighbours tell me. JETTA arrived in the last days of december, they say. Like in the years before JETTA will visit the nest box very late, just before her first egg... She seems to know that I cleaned up her room.

NOW our three webcams are running and you can visit them on our webpage. We should install a fourth cam because PERKEO stands many hours - especially in the morning - on top oft the steeple (cross). Often JETTA arrives standing on the other branch of the cross and when I watch them from below I think: They look like the old guys in the Muppets Show/Sesam Street) : massive body, head drawn in, commenting to each other what`s going on down in the street: "Today lot`s of Chinese tourists over here..."
