All videos are on the same page for better accessibility. Nevertheless, the number of videos you can open may be limited by the speed of your internet connection.

You can enlarge each video to play them in full screen. During nest box periods, you can choose the one you want to read more particularly in the bottom list (unframed images). It's up to you to choose for better flexibility.

During the nesting period the tab “birdhouse(s) in the spotlight” only has a few interesting nest boxes, to access all the nest boxes go to the tab “At the Gallery”

Warning :
I want to expressly point out that this is a permanent wildlife live stream! Some situations can be disturbing for sensitive people !!! In addition, I don't sit under the stations or under the nest boxes all day, nor does it constantly monitor the live stream, so I can't help immediately, even in an emergency ! Such situations would not be noticeable if there was no camera and would then follow a natural course..

↓ ↓ ↓ To the Gallery (selection of all nest boxes live)

These videos from inside the nest boxes are for subscribers only (To have access, subscribe, it's free)

The season usually starts in early March, Thanks for your patience.
