The Wellesley College RavenCam, live streaming the nesting action of ravens outside the school’s Science Center, is back in action. The camera first went online just about the exact same time last year.
The school last spring put together resources online that give background on the big black birds and explain why the ravens might have chosen the cliff-like Science Center as a home. Students and faculty have used the webcam to study the birds around the clock.
Professor of Environmental Science and Biological Sciences Nicholas Rodenhouse last spring said: “Ours is the first opportunity to closely observe this most creative of birds in close contact with people. Much can potentially be learned about parental behavior, vocalizations, diet, and more.”
