Bird Nestcams

If you enjoyed the Luther Bald Eagle Camera, or just plain enjoy watching nature; please take a moment to visit the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Nestcams.  Right now they have cameras set up for an Eastern Bluebird, Barn and Barred Owls, and a Eastern Phoebe.  ALL of these species breed in Iowa!  After your done watching, take time to look outside to see what nest you may find.

  1. We have a bluebird house in our back yard. There is a nest and lots of in and out activity going on. It did not take long for the bluebirds to find our house.

  2. Neat experience! Did you check to confirm the nest?
