Access to the nest of blue tit via webcam!
Seule la femelle construit le nid et s'occupe de la couvaison. Le mâle ravitaille la femelle pendant cette période et ils s'occuperont en couple de nourrir les petits jusqu'à l'envol et même plusieurs jours après.
Pour la distinction, c'est très délicat, c'est surtout possible lorsqu'ils se trouvent tous les deux dans le nichoir : le mâle est beaucoup plus bleu que la femelle qui est plus terne.
The “Falcons of Théding” present: the “Blue tits of Théding“!
This nest-box dedicated to the blue tit has been installed since spring 2019. It is hung in a fir tree 2 meters in height, at the bottom of the garden, in Théding.
An on-board I.P. camera, fixed in a false ceiling, makes it possible to view the nest from above. This camera is connected by a long ethernet cable which allows internet access but also to power it electrically. The camera has 2 different viewing modes: a “fisheye” mode which allows viewing the entire nest box (with the balcony and the flight hole) as well as allowing to see an area with extra accuracy . (More technical information by reading the “behind the scenes” page).
Artificial lighting has been added to the false ceiling: the brightness generated by the LED passes through small holes in the false ceiling. The light turns on automatically (thanks to connected plugs) at sunrise. It goes out at sunset . At night, infrared lighting takes over.
Live video is available 24/7 during the breeding season, approximately from February to June. You can follow their adventure from the construction of the nest to the flight of the nestlings. Go through the photo / video gallery to learn the history of this year and previous years.
