2014 Critter Cams

Each Spring, thousands of web cams start streaming video as wildlife prepares new homes and starts to raise their young. We've reviewed many and recommend these sites as some of the most fun and most unusual. Simply click on any critter image to open a window to that critter cam site. We'll continue to add more as the season progresses.

NOTE:  Several of the CAMS will show season highlights when they are "off air".  Typically the "off air" or "LIVE" notice is in the lower right-hand corner.

IT IS "LIVE BEAR CAM" TIME IN ALASKA ...

THE SALMON ARE RUNNING

SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW

 
BALD EAGLE
Each year the Decorah Eagles enthrall nature lovers across the world. Located at the Raptor Resource Project in Decorah, Iowa, Director Bob Anderson uses a live web cam to monitor the nest. Each year eggs are laid, eaglets hatch and the world watches them learn to fly.

OSPREY
 This is one of several osprey nests in Boulder County, Colorado.  In the spring of 2003, this osprey pair began nesting on a light pole at the Boulder County Fairgrounds and returned each year. In 2009, wildlife biologists moved the nest to its current location just east of the Cattail pond for the birds' safety. The pair shifted to the new location with ease.




 
SANDHILL CRANES
ONE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST WILDLIFE SPECTACLES
 From the Rowe Sanctuary in Nebraska on the Platte River. This area is the resting point for nearly a half million sandhill cranes during Spring migration. The cranes leave in the morning and return in the evening. The sound of so many birds in one spot is really something. Put this place on your bucket list for mid-March and you will have a lifetime experience. Best viewing early morning and late evening.
 
BALD EAGLE
This is the second year broadcasting a live feed from a Bald Eagle nest in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area. We believe this is the same pair or eagles that have been using this nest for several years. This year there are again a total of three eggs in the nest. The first egg was laid on Friday, Feb. 14th and the following two over about the next six days.

ATLANTIC PUFFIN 
BURROW
Atlantic Puffins spend most of their time at sea — coming to land each spring to breed in colonies on northern seacoasts and rocky islands, like Seal Island in Maine,  home to the puffins visible on our live cam. These colorful pigeon-sized birds lay one egg in their burrow homes, with the male and female sharing duties.
 
PEREGRINE FALCONS
The camera is remotely deployed to view one of Mississippi's known pairs of Peregrine Falcons. It provides live video of this nesting pair 24 hours a day and is equipped with low light color vision.
 
PEREGRINE FALCONS
A well placed webcam in a nesting box. These live images are being taken from a Peregrine falcon nest maintained by ODNR, Division of Wildlife. The nest and cams are located on the 41st floor of the Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus, Ohio.

 
GREAT HORNED OWL

This nest is located in  Charlo, Montana.  A powerful and adaptable bird of prey, the Great Horned Owl has the most extensive range, the widest prey base and the most variable nesting sites of any American owl.

BROWN BEARS & SALMON

This is a feed from Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park, Alaska   Every year over a hundred Brown Bears descend on a mile long stretch of Brooks River to feast on the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world.  Mid-July is the peak of the activity. 

IT IS BEAR CAM TIME !!!



 
HUMMINGBIRD
Phoebe is a non-migratory Channel Islands Allen's Hummingbird in Southern California.  She builds her nests in a rose bush, and the nest is about the size of a golf ball, with eggs being about the size of a tic-tac candy. The season for nesting is October through May/early June, and Phoebe will lay four to five clutches per season. Two eggs are laid per clutch, they hatch after 17 days, and the chicks typically fly three to four weeks later. 
 
BARN OWLS
 This Barn Owl box is nestled in the rafters of a large open-air pavilion on a ranch in Texas. Surrounded by grasslands and scrubby forest, the box has been occupied off-and-on by Barn Owls for as long as the landowner can recall.

HONEY BEE HIVE
LANDING ZONE
 Get a glimpse inside a hive thanks to two cameras that explore.org installed in a hollow log in Waal. Germany.One of the live feeds moves throughout the colony, and you can watch the bees as they build combs and produce honey. The second camera focuses on the entrance to the hive, and insects can be seen constantly coming and going.   U.S. beekeepers estimate that in the past year, 40 percent to 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate the nation’s produce have been wiped out by colony collapse disorder.

 Here is your lens in to the underwater world of the Cayman Islands. The reef cam is located less than 1km from Ocean Frontiers dive boat dock, inside our protected lagoon. The reef cam video is only visible during daylight hours as this is a true live feed.  A high speed internet connection of 5MB or higher is recommended.  (A Teens4oceans Project).
