EarthCam Live Webcams Take Viewers Inside the Life of Nesting Birds

Technology Aids Conservation Awareness Efforts for Threatened Species

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - Spring has arrived, which means animals around the country are getting ready to welcome some new babies into the world. EarthCam takes visitors inside the nest of threatened and special concern bird species throughout the United States with its live streaming webcams.

EarthCam offers viewers the unique opportunity to see nesting birds as they prepare for the arrival for the next generation. From Peregrine Falcons in Illinois, Nebraska, Pennsylvania and New York to Osprey in Massachusetts and Burrowing Owls in Florida, people around the world can join this special journey from egg to hatchling.

One of the webcam network's most popular bird cams is in Omaha, Nebraska. EarthCam partnered with WoodmenLife in 2011 and together have captivated the attention of viewers around the world with a live streaming webcam at the nest of the resident Peregrine Falcons.

"The FalconCam gives people the chance to learn more about wildlife conservation, and to glimpse into the lives of peregrine falcons as they nest, incubate eggs and rear their young, all in live time," said Larry King, Chairman, President and CEO, WoodmenLife. "The number of people watching the feed has been a sensation -- our FalconWatch site averages close to 20,000 visitors per year. Whether it's children watching the peregrines in school or employees checking updates while they are at work -- people tune in for their daily fix, and really have banded together to watch out for them."

The webcams provide an unobtrusive observation window into the life of our feathered friends and offers people a chance to learn more about the conservation efforts to preserve each species. EarthCam's reliable technology ensures that the cameras remain online at all times, eliminating the need to manually service the equipment and risk disturbing the delicate incubating and hatching process.
