Free Family Fun: Wildlife Webcams

April 6, 2012

Over the last two years, my kids and I have enjoyed several hours of free entertainment through watching Wildlife Webcams. Our favorite one to watch are the Decorah Eagles that you can see on UStream. Three Eagle eggs just recently hatched (missed them all this year!) and the kids can watch the little eaglets. Don’t they look so fuzzy right now?

Another webcam is of a Hummingbird Nest Cam. It’s interesting to watch Phoebe feeding the little hummingbirds from time to time.

You can also sometimes see Winter the Dolphin on her webcam. (This is the one that inspired the movie Dolphin Tale)

There are so many out there. You can check out UStream, YouTube, etc to find lots more.

I thought I’d share in case you were looking for something to do on a rainy day or over a weekend when money’s tight.

Have you found any fun wildlife or animal webcams that your family has enjoyed watching?

UPDATE: Here are a few more my readers have recommended. I’ll keep adding them as they are shared.

Africam
National Zoo (you may need to install a plug-in for this one)
Wild Maine Black Bear Den
University of Nebraska’s Egg Cam
Oceanside California Barn Owls on Ustream
Elephant Sanctuary in Tennesee
Sea World Shamu Cam
