Baby bird live webcam

I noticed a bird nest on the rain gutter under an overhanging roof eve. So I setup a webcam for a "bird's eye view" and there are four baby finches - live coverage at: Link

They'll only be there a few weeks before they "fly the coop" but pretty cool to see the development which can be seen in the pictures and time-lapse video on the site.

  1. Why won’t the obnoxious mower stop running over and over (under) my cursor? This is an awesome idea and I adore animal webcams, but the lawn mower is driving me batty!

  2. Exactly what I popped in to say. The birds are darling, and this is a unique and interesting opportunity to see them live and grow, but someone failed Good Webpage Design 101.

  3. The Lawn Mower Cursor is there because normally, the website is … Watching … Grass … Grow.
    Note the button to switch webcams and keep an eye on my front lawn.

    However, given that the Birdcam is just a wheeee bit more exciting and the primary focus, I just toggled the lawn mower cursor off – don’t want people to think I’m going to run over the bird nest.

    Glad you enjoy the birds … they ARE darling in real life and my kids are enthralled by ’em.

  4. I had some baby robins outside my bedroom window for a few weeks. After they flew the coop, I caught my dog cornering one of them in the back yard. Poor little guy was too frightened to fly up to the top of the fence! Not that the dog was trying to kill it, he was just sniffing at it, like “Wtf is this thing??” – I only found it because the momma bird and all his brothers/sisters were FLIPPING THE SHIT OUT. :)

  5. Though it’s a little late now (as the eggs have hatched) the Pittsburgh Aviary has a webcam set up on the Peregrine Falcon nest which is atop the Gulf Tower downtown. They’ve also got a tv tuned to the feed set up at street level, inside a coffeeshop.
