If you are an avid bird watcher, or don’t have access to see many birds in your area, you can see them online. There are a variety of bird webcams and even bird feeder cams online that many bird lovers post on line to share with the world. Some are streaming webcams while others update their images every so many minutes (which could be anywhere from one to ten minutes at a time).
One fun bird feeder webcam to watch is located in Lawrence, Kansas. The webcam hosts use a variety of birdseed that attracts many kinds of bird species. Some of the feeders have sunflower seeds, Nyerere and black oil sunflower and suet. Some of the birds that you will see include cardinals, chickadees, goldfinch, mourning doves, sparrows and even a few robins here and there. If you love to watch nature up close, this webcam is an absolute delight to watch.
Another bird feeder webcam to view is in Estes Park, Colorado. It seems as if the webcam is set somewhere out in the country with mountains out back. With the available trees in the area, the webcam draws plenty of interested birds throughout the day. Also on the webcam page, you can view the current weather in the Estes Park, Colorado area, and even see a flash video of the past twenty-four hours. If you are an astronomer buff, you can even see the current phase of the moon too.
On Justin.tv, you can spot an active bird feeder webcam set up in Northern Virginia. During the evening, when it’s not online, you can view the videos of some of the birds that stopped by to visit during the day, or even see some of the videos from previous days as well. View some of the chatty blue-birds that made their daily stop, see squirrels try to sneak into the bird feeders and all of the other birds who came by to stop for a snack. The webcam has had over one million viewers and currently has over 300 followers on Twitter. You can bookmark the bird feeder webcam for later viewing or even share it with your friends on Twitter, Facebook or MySpace.
So should you ever have some moments out of your busy day, or want to take a time out, you can get close to nature, and watch some birds stop by for their daily dinner or snack. Should you live somewhere in the city, and can’t see the peaceful scenes of a bird-feeder, you can view them online. Or perhaps, if you have a busy front or back-yard, you can put up a webcam for others to see the birds visiting your home too. No matter where you are, nature is never too far away, when there are so many available webcams online to view.
