Our Birds

GHOHave you been birdwatching in the library? We usually have one of the monitors at the check-out desk tuned to a live bird (or bear) cam. Our favorites include:

The Great Horned Owl nesting above the salt marshes of Skidaway Island, near Savannah. She currently has two owlets in the former eagles' nest. #1 hatched February 3rd and #2 February 6th. If you want to keep up with events, check the twitter feed.

Bella Hummingbird, Southern California. She has two chicks, both hatched February 6th. A chat board is available. Her official name? Selasphorus sasin

The Ontario bird feeders, north of Lake Superior. What are those large yellow birds? Evening Grosbeaks. That big fat one? A ruffled grouse.

The Laysan Albatross, Kauai, Hawaii. Malumalu has one chick, Niaulani, hatched January 31st. News.

Do you know the story of Crabby, a young Maryland Osprey? She is currently wintering in French Guiana.

Much of the fall we watched the bears of Katmai National Park catch salmon. The bear cam is currently off-line, showing reruns. Hibernation time.
