Oystercatcher webcam

A friend reminded me of this webcam: Tjelden på taket, or the Oystercatcher webcam. It shows, for what I believe to be the fourth year in row, the nest of an Oystercatcher on the roof of the building for natural science at the University of Bergen. I can't remember when I saw this first, but according to their facebook page, the current birds have been there since 2008.

This is one of the really fun things on the Internet. Not big news or anything, but an opportunity to see how a bird acts while hatching. And the rebuilding that was to start this spring was delayed when Kjell and Kjellaug came back to their nest.

Happy bird-watching!
