Live Cameras on Great Blue Herons and Pond at Cornell

Cornell University Lab of Ornithology, Ithaca, New York

The Great Blue Herons Have Returned!
Camera #1: To see live stream video of the Great Blue Herons and waterfowl at Cornell's Sapsucker Pond, Click Here.

Camera #2: To see the view from a different angle as well as the activities of feathered friends around the pond, Click Here.

HINTS: Keep BOTH cameras displayed on your screen at the same time. A human will sometimes pan the second camera over the pond to see herons fishing, collecting nest material or just hanging out nearby.
  Also, turn up the Sound Volume on your computer. There's a party going on in the background! 

Status Updates:
April 1: A heron was spotted at Sapsucker Pond.

April 7: Herons have arrived... 3 of them!
About Great Blue Herons: They usually lay 2-6 eggs and share incubation duties for 25-30 days. Incubation begins with the first egg, and the young hatch asynchronously (not at the same time) over 2-5 days. After hatching, it'll take 7-8 weeks before they fly from the nest for the first time.
