Cornell Lab Great Blue Herons nest cams are one of the latest cams to join their list of live cams. Beautiful live video of nesting Great Blue Herons is streaming directly from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Sapsucker Woods Pond.

The Great Blue Heron nest is in a large white-oak snag outside the office of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology They have nested in this same snag for the last five years.

The herons returned to the nest in mid-March and soon began courting: bringing twigs, standing side by side in the nest, clattering their bills, and nipping at each other. To get good views of these large birds, The Cornell Lab has installed two cameras that stream simultaneously, one from above the nest and the other at nest level. The lower camera can record even in dark conditions and streams all night long.

Please make sure to include the Cornell Lab logo in any screen captures that are posted....Thank you!!

From Cornell Lab----


Cornell Lab of Ornithology via Bird Cams

The herons are back! For a couple of weeks now we've been anxiously waiting to find out whether they would return this year to their nest outside our offices. They're later than they were last year—but they showed up tonight and put on a great display of courting. Did you see them? Here are a few screen captures that viewers submitted—check out Bird Cams for more.
