Another objective of this multi-generational study is to observe ongoing working relationships between family members from year to year.
As in previous years, we are recording selected video and audio from several cameras, 24/7 for research purposes.
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO LOCATE THE NEST SITE OR APPROACH IT AS DOING SO COULD RESULT IN DEATH OF THE CHICKS AND THE END OF THIS RESEARCH.
OTHER PROJECTS: Live video for other nests is also available at this website.
Since Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research began streaming live video from this vulture shed in 2011, video has been watched by individuals living in 114 countries on 6 continents.
Viewing nesting behavior over the Internet, rather than observing the birds directly, avoids activity near the nest that could lead the adults to abandon it.
Live stream by Ustream The Tri-State Vulture Cam is up and running for 2017.
They are gregarious, often seen in communal roosts or feeding on carrion, helping keep the environment clean.This research and educational nest cam project is entering its seventh season, five of which have seen black vultures nesting in the same shed in northern Delaware. The project is sponsored by Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research, Inc.of Newark, DE, Mike Postolan of Glenham NY, Bob Bryant of Hockessin DE, and the anonymous owner of the property where the nest is located. Wasn't concerned about the vibrator as much as the camera - and that was the most disappointing.However, after reading the other reviews, I really wasn't surprised.
