Amazing Live-Stream Animal Cams

It is finally, finally, starting to get nice out. I believe we even hit 50 degrees for a brief moment. I think we’re all ready to get outside – I’ve been feeling quite antsy, shut away indoors especially as my apartment complex strongly advises to keep the windows closed until the temperatures consistently stay at 50 degrees (I may have gotten a letter or two stating that I’m letting all the building heat out…)

I’m more than ready to throw my windows open and breathe in some fresh air. Unfortunately, like most of us, even when the weather does get nice, the majority of my time outside is limited to walking from the parking lot straight into work where I then spend the most pleasant part of the day stuck inside a building.

But not to worry.

I have you covered so you won’t completely succumb to cabin fever as we wait for the weather to warm up. You can still get a glimpse and experience the great outdoors, even when you’re trapped at your desk, with these wild and also quite adorable live-streaming animal webcams. Trust me, you’ll be hooked.

Eagle Cam

Amazing Live-Stream Animal Cams

Now in its fifth season, the new and improved Minnesota DNR Eagle Cam is up and running. The upgraded equipment now includes audio and an infrared light allowing you to watch the birds’ nocturnal activity. You’ll be fascinated watching the eagle pair nurture and feed their eaglets as well as keeping track of the tiny white-footed mice who have also made the eagle’s nest their home. And while both the male and female eagle look similar, you can identify the female eagle by her brighter white feathers, her larger frame, and bigger beak and feet. Watch the Eagle Cam here.

Falcon Cam

Perched on top of the Bremer Bank Building in downtown St. Paul, the Falcon Cam has captured peregrine falcons make this spot their home for nearly 30 years. This year, the peregrine falcon named Jill has returned for a ninth year to raise her chicks with a new mate. She’s already begun laying her eggs and they’re expected to hatch around Memorial Day. Watch Jill and keep an eye out for when her chicks hatch here.

Tapir Cam

Twin Cities Agenda writer Jeremy Laue first introduced us to Bertie the Malayan tapir at the Minnesota Zoo back in December. And just this past January, Bertie gave birth to a little calf named Indah. The zoo staff knew we wouldn’t be able to resist these delightful creatures and set up a tapir cam for us to follow Bertie and watch her little calf Indah grow up. Watch their shenanigans here.

Wolf Cam

Courtesy of the International Wolf Center in Ely, MN, you can get an up-close look at the wolfpack: Aidan, Denal, Boltz, and the newest additions, arctic wolf pups Axel and Grayson. These five wolves call the 1.25 acre Exhibit Pack enclosure their home. You can usually spot them resting under trees or catch the Wolf Care staff performing regular vet check-ups. You can also check out the webcam of the Retired Pack enclosure that features Grizzer, the gray-colored wolf, and Luna, the black-colored wolf, lounging around enjoying their retirement. Because of their old age, Grizzer and Luna are separated from the pack where staff can keep an eye on them and observe their behavior. I definitely killed a good chunk of time watching these wolf pups. Watch them here.

Panda Cam

Who doesn’t love pandas? With their constant antics and inclination to simply tumble out of trees, you’ll be hooked watching Gao Gao, Bai Yun, and Xiao Liwu at the San Diego Zoo. Watch their live-stream here.

Sea Otter Cam

Amazing Live-Stream Animal Cams

You will not be disappointed with the Sea Otter Cam. Set up at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California (and yes, it is the same Monterey Bay Aquarium from the movie Finding Dory) there is always a lot of entertaining activity and interaction between the sea otters and zookeepers. And as a bonus, Monterey Bay Aquarium has set up several other live webcams around the facility that include an Aviary/Bird cam, Jelly Cam, Open Sea Cam, Monterey Bay, and Penguin Cam.
