Elsewhere on the Web

Decorah Eagles
Summary: Somewhere in Decorah, IA, someone put a webcam in a Bald Eagle nest and is broadcasting the activities of its occupants (two adults and three eaglets) to the world. This is shockingly popular.

OSU College of Biological Sciences Greenhouses
Summary: A titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) named 'Woody' at Ohio State University, in Columbus, OH, is in the process of blooming. There's a webcam for this one too, which seems a little unnecessary but whatever.

So cool. Thanks!

Why do you say it's shockingly popular? Bird cams are consistently popular. I'm not shocked - we're a nation of birders.

You can't be shocked by the amount of time people waste watching bird cams, either, knowing full well how much time people waste on Facebook and Twitter.

You just anti-bird cam or something?

Not anti-bird cam. I knew that bird cams existed, but I would not have thought that there could be that many people watching them. Not being a birder myself, and not having (or wanting) a webcam, it hadn't occurred to me that there would be that many people watching.
