Webcams. Again?

Yep, I’m at it again. If webcams bore you, feel free to move along. But I happen to enjoy them — especially when they are live streaming with sound, as both of these are. So make sure your speakers are on.

In Hawaii, Kilauea Volcano is erupting again and the US Geological Survey (USGS) has a live streaming webcam at Kilauea’s Halemaʻumaʻu crater on the Big Island. When I checked it out, there were more than 900 people watching and an active chat channel was scrolling on one side. (You’ll have to go to YouTube to see the chat.) This one loads slowly for me, so be patient.

I wouldn’t want to be down there.

(AfarTV is streaming this volcano webcam. There are more “nature” webcams on their site.)

And of course, this time of year, there’s always the bear cam at Alaska’s Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park. Currently it is streaming highlights and there are a lot of youngsters to watch along with the adults. Gulls are busy picking up scraps, and a night camera even caught a coyote (possibly a wolf, but I’m a city girl so what do I know).

Boy, those bears have it all. Sunsets, waterfalls, great company, and free food. They even have gulls around to clean up afterwards.
Wolf or coyote? I’m not sure, but it looks like he’s spotted some fresh salmon scraps.
Moms have to teach their kids how to catch the good stuff.
Turns out this is a highlight video from the 2022 season. Be sure to check out the live cams for 2023

  1. Now, Colorado .. I see a lot of very patient bears, but I do not see any old salmon throwing themselves into the bears’ waiting jaws. How do you explain this lack ?! [grin]

... and that's my two cents
