Friday Fun: Birds

What better way to celebrate Friday and the weekend than by appreciating nature via bird cams!

I’ve recently been enjoying the Texas Barn Owls, brought to us by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. They should be fledging soon, in about a week or so. You can choose other bird cams listed at

Interested in learning more? The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s web site has information about birds and birding, and Andersen Library has resources too! Search the catalog for books such as Birds and people (Main Oversize Collection, 3rd Floor, QL673 .C63 2013), The birdwatcher’s companion to North American birdlife (Main Collection, 3rd Floor, QL681 .L35 2004), North American owls: Biology and natural history (Main Collection, 3rd Floor, QL696.S8 J64 2002), and many other titles. Also check out the Great Wisconsin Birding & Nature Trail web site and Audubon‘s web site with a lot of information, including The Online Guide to North American Birds.

Please ask a librarian for assistance with finding materials, if desired.
