As of September 2015, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology hosts live bird cams for four species: barn owls, California condors, Hellgate ospreys and red-tailed hawks. Two other live cams show the Cornell Lab bird feeders and the Sapsucker Woods Pond in Ithaca, New York.
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology live cams are located throughout the United States, including sites in Texas, Montana, Alaska and New York state. Each live cam feed also provides links to facts about that bird species, frequently asked questions and educator resources. To host the live feeds, Cornell University partners with various avian organizations and businesses, such as the Peregrine Fund, Wild Birds Unlimited and Skidaway Audobon. Cornell Lab live cams that are temporarily turned off or retired include those for barred owls, great horned owls, Laysan albatrosses, great blue herons and snowy owls.
