One thing that fascinates my kids (and me!) is the variety of birds and animals on our planet. Every opportunity to observe and experience is cherished. If you're lucky enough to have a birds' nest nearby and can safely observe, that's fantastic! Unfortunately, not all of us do. So here's something we enjoy checking every spring. Nestcams! These are cameras set up in known nesting boxes for us to observe (over the internet) these wonderful birds as their young are born and get ready for their new world. Check out the just a few of the many, many sites with NestCams:
Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Live Owl Nest Box Cam
San Jose Peregrine Falcon Nest Cam
Channel Islands Nest Cam (Bald eagle)
Have a favorite nest cam you'd like to share? Please post it!
