You can keep an eye on this peregrine falcon nest in Rome, Italy and on this white stork nest near Munich, Germany. You can also follow some birds as they migrate from Africa in the springtime. This website follows eagles and storks that carry tracking devices as they return to Eastern Europe. Click the “to start” button and then play to watch the birds movements over a few months. Here you can track some cuckoos that spend a few months in summer in England and return to Africa in the Autumn. Stork nest in Holland.
