The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has made available several live webcams and recorded clips showing a variety of birds in their courtship, nesting and young rearing activities.
The cameras, and their websites, include:
Great Blue Herons - Watch these graceful birds fly up to their nest, then walk along a branch directly toward the camera to begin their courtship display. The video highlight comes from the live-streaming nest cam outside the lab's office, where the birds now are incubating five eggs.
