We have welcomed three new live cams to our library! Owl Research Institute spotted a new Great Gray Owl nest and promptly helped us set up a new cam. We already have one owlet letting us get quick sneak peaks of it!

Our second live cam is our Red-Tailed Hawk cam which has since been taken over by Canada Geese! We see at least four eggs on the nest but geese are notorious for hiding their eggs so there may be more we are not able to see!

Unfortunately, we must be the bearer of bad news once again. While this week started out so joyful for the Anacapa Peregrine Falcons, one eyas was taken from the nest by a seagull. Two eyasses still remain, happy and healthy, and we hope this is the last we see of any type of attack on the nest.
