I started watching birdcams during the pandemic. They are fun and surprisingly relaxing. My favorites are one in Akron, Ohio. In addition to the birds they get raccoons, (with babies sometimes!) opossums (my favorite), skunks, bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, and the occasional deer and cat.
Someone just turned me onto the Cornell feeder, which is lovely. I don’t know what they do but the colors and resolution are great.
Then there’s this new one in Pretoria, South Africa. The variety they get is amazing. For a couple of days I’ve been watching a fruit bat trying to get a banana. It’s been killing me, I so wanted him to succeed and last night, victory!
A few other great sitings at the South African birdcam. This is a genet.
And this is a Hadeda Ibis.
