You can watch a wide variety of birds as they tend their nests. See eggs, hatchlings, and watch the mama and papa birds feed their young. This is a fascinating view of the world of birds.

When you get to the site you’ll see some featured birds cams. Click on the one you want to watch or click “All” under the Bird Cam menu to see them listed in alphabetical order including: 

  • Great Blue Herons
  • Great Horned Owls
  • Laysan Albatross
  • Red-tailed Hawks
  • ~ and more!

Click on any one, and a new page opens for your viewing delight. (Some link to other sites with live cams; some are videos of past viewings.)
