The Live Streams

A total of 13 cameras film what happens in the nesting boxes, the feeding place, the hedgehog house and the squirrel house.
Observe 24h / 7 days a week live the wild life in the garden.

At the feeding place I operate a year-round feeding. Among other things, sunflower seeds, seasonal feed mixtures, insect dumplings, apples, walnuts and hazelnuts are offered. And so visitors like titmice, blackbirds, goldfinches, spotted woodpeckers and even the collared parakeet are regularly seen.  The nuts and sunflower seeds are eaten enthusiastically by our squirrels. With 3 cameras, the events are recorded and broadcast live here.

A little tip: On the website of Alexander Fuhr there are also great insights into the nesting box, bird house and hedgehog house. Have a look at Nistkasten Livestream

See what has been going on at the feeding place in the last 12 hours?

Then look at my YouTube channel Nistkasten Lindweiler.
There are also all 4 streams with active recorder function. You can rewind up to 12 hours in the stream.
If you subscribe to the channel and activate the bell, you will always be informed about new videos and content.

Since the season of the titmice for nest-construction and breeding of the birds usually goes from March until June/July, nothing is to be seen in the nesting box in the remaining time. In order not to cause unnecessary power consumption and data volume, the nesting box is therefore offline outside the season. As soon as something happens in the nesting box, it will go back online.

A little tip: On the website of Alexander Fuhr there are also great insights into the nesting box, birdhouse and hedgehog house. At the moment, a great tit spends the night in one of his nesting boxes every day. Just have a look at Nistkasten Livestream

The hedgehog sleeping house is a Big Brother house only with hedgehogs. Unfortunately the hedgehog, who has visited this house here regularly and used it for sleeping, had to be taken into medical care due to an injury. Therefore the sleeping house is currently not occupied. Since the hedgehogs hibernate from November to April, nothing more will happen in the house until further notice. Therefore I have taken the hedgehog house offline until the next season to reduce power and data consumption – for the sake of the environment.

Originally, I had the hutch hanging in a pasture near the feeding area. There, however, the visits by squirrels were very rare. I had the assumption that the Kobel simply hung too close to the feeding place and therefore the squirrels had not considered the Kobel as safe.

Thereupon I, after I had procured a 10m long rope as an ascent assistance, installed the Kobel with me at the house under the eaves. But also here the visits in the Kobel by squirrels remained rather the exception. 
Tit and starling visited the hutch regularly, but the squirrels only found their way to the hutch when I had laid a trail of walnuts. After that, the hutch was no longer of interest. 

So in the winter of 2021, I again decided to hang the hutch back in the pasture, but this time a little farther away from the feeding area.
As daily squirrels flit through the pasture, they will inevitably come across the hob. The one or other short visit there was also already. 
Maybe we are now lucky and one of the squirrels here in the garden takes the Kobel at the new place as a bedroom.

Am 07.06.2022 um 11:40 Uhr betrug die Temperatur im Eichhörnchenkobel null °C

Ursprünglich hatte ich den Kobel in einer Weide in der Nähe des Futterplatzes hängen. Dort waren die Besuche durch Eichhörnchen aber sehr selten. Ich hatte die Vermutung, das der Kobel einfach zu dicht an der Futterstelle hing und daher die Eichhörnchen den Kobel nicht als sicher betrachtet hatten.

Daraufhin habe ich, nachdem ich mir ein 10m langes Tau besorgt als Aufstiegshilfe besorgt hatte, den Kobel bei mir am Haus unterm Dachvorsprung installiert. Aber auch hier blieben die Besuche im Kobel durch Eichhörnchen eher die Ausnahme. 
Meise und Star haben den Kobel regelmäßig besichtigt, aber die Hörnchen fanden lediglich zum Kobel, wenn ich eine Spur aus Walnüssen ausgelegt hatte. Danach war der Kobel nicht mehr von Interesse. 

So habe ich mich im Winter 2021 wieder dazu entschieden, den Kobel zurück in die Weide zu hängen, dieses mal aber ein wenig weiter weg von der Futterstelle.
Da tägliche die Eichhörnchen durch die Weide flitzen, werden sie zwangsweise auf den Kobel stoßen. Die eine oder andere kurze Besichtigung gab es auch schon. 
Vielleicht haben wir ja nun das Glück und eines der Eichhörnchen hier im Garten nimmt den Kobel am neuen Platz als Schlafzimmer an.

On this page I have summarized all live streams that are currently online and where action is expected. What you can see here will be adjusted if necessary.
