Welcome to KNC’s Live Owl Cam,

where you can watch an active nest of great-horned owls (Bubo virginianus) as they grow.

Please note, this is a live nature camera. Live prey may be brought to the nest and other acts of nature may be seen occurring. Viewing is best in afternoon and evening based on the angle of the sun. The camera is on KNC property in an area not accessible to the public.

Update May 16, 2023:
The owls have fledged after about seven weeks in the nest! This is a normal time for them to take flight and head out into the world. They will continue to be cared for and fed by the parents for several months. Check back next year when we’ll continue to monitor the nest if they choose to return to it again!

Support Birds of Prey at KNC

Donate to the GoFundMe Campaign to build KNC’s Birds of Prey new housing. Tukey, KNC’s beloved turkey vulture, and his feathered friends need a new place to stay. Their homes at the Kalamazoo Nature Center were damaged by ice storms that wreaked havoc this spring in Southern Michigan and are currently in temporary housing until new ones can be built.
