  • There is always something new to watch, and I am continually looking for unique bird cams to add. 🙂

Check out my Youtube channel HERE.

  • Currently, I have FOUR live bird cams streaming. Plus, you will be made aware when highlight videos are uploaded!

North America (4 bird cams)

#1. Akron, Ohio


This live camera watches my bird feeding station! It’s located at the back of the yard, just on the edge of the woods where the grass meets some trees. Nearby is a small swamp that attracts many wetland birds and also an open field with many native flowers. I live in northeast Ohio, near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.


On most days, you can expect to see a wide variety of bird species, and my cam provides a great way to learn the common birds of the eastern United States. The birds and animals certainly eat a lot of food, and I am currently spending about $250/month to keep the feeders full. 🙂


Make sure to check out my second LIVE camera, which watches the animals BELOW my bird feeders.


Common Birds Observed:

Northern Cardinal, American Goldfinch, House Finch, House Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Mourning Dove, Blue Jay, Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Common Grackle, European Starling, and Black-capped Chickadee.


It’s also common to witness our resident Eastern Grey Squirrels make a giant leap of faith from the trees to the feeding station.


Featured Bird Feeders:

If you could look inside my shed, you would see that I have MANY bird feeders. This fact makes it hard to keep an updated list of the ones that are currently on display. To view a list of all of my favorites, I recommend reading this article –> The 16 BEST Bird Feeders In MY Backyard!


Most Common Foods Used:

  • Sunflower kernels, peanuts (shelled and in the shell), safflower, nyjer seed, and suet.


#2. Birmingham, Alabama

This LIVE bird feeder cam is located in Birmingham, Alabama (USA), and is hosted by Ken.


Ken is recently retired from real estate banking. He has grown kids and enjoys wildlife photography, playing and recording music, golf, and traveling with his wife. You can view Ken’s photography on his website.


Ken’s house is in a suburban neighborhood, southeast of downtown Birmingham, AL along the U.S. Hwy 280 corridor. There are lots of deciduous trees around, which attracts a variety of wildlife. The houses in the neighborhood are VERY close to one another with narrow but deep lots. I’m amazed at the amount of diversity he gets in a busy, residential area.





  • Mainly black sunflower seed, mixed with shelled sunflower and safflower seed. Suet.



  • White-breasted Nuthatch, Tufted Titmouse, Carolina Wren, Carolina Chickadee, Northern Cardinal, Mourning Dove, Brown-headed Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, House Finch, Blue Jays, American Goldfinch, Northern Mockingbird, and sparrows. You may get lucky and see Eastern Bluebirds feeding on mealworms.




#3. Alberta, Canada

This LIVE bird feeding station is located in Alberta, Canada, and is hosted by Jessica. Look for the flickers eating suet and the Blue Jays taking all the peanuts!


She lives near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, which is about an hour’s drive from Banff National Park. Be prepared to witness some frigid weather in the winter, reaching as low as -39 Celsius (-38 F).


Jess lives on the edge of a nature preserve. It’s common to see people in the background walking and riding bikes on the public walkways. Many of the birds you see come from wetlands and a forested area nearby. If you’re lucky, you may even spot a deer walking in the backyard or the mountains on the right-hand side. The camera points southwest.

#4. Hummingbirds in California


Carole provides this hummingbird camera at her home in Los Angeles, California.


Carole has been consistently feeding hummingbirds at this location for eight years, which is one of the reasons she attracts so many visitors. On a typical day, she has to refill the feeders THREE times! The hummers drink the nectar so quickly that you can almost see the sugar water going down.


In addition to these feeders, ten others are off-camera, as well as many nectar-rich plants. You never have to worry that these hummingbirds are hungry. 🙂



  • Year-round, daily visitors: Anna’s, Allen’s
  • Summer only: Black-chinned
  • Spring and Fall Migration: Rufous
  • Rare: Costa’s, Calliope
  • *Hooded Orioles often visit the feeders to sip nectar.*

Please enjoy this small contribution from this wonderful family, as they love sharing a little window into Africa and the wonderful blessings from nature, highlighting the importance of taking good care of our valuable environment.

#9: Czech Republic

This live animal cam is generously shared with us from the  Makov Animal Rescue in the Czech Republic. You can expect to see a wide variety of European birds and small mammals.


In the background, you may see deer, storks, or other animals roaming around, as we are watching inside the rescue station, and many animals are allowed to roam freely! The deer lost their mothers at a young age and can’t be returned to the wild.


The facility has 35 aviaries with an area of 4000 square meters! It accepts all injured, sick, or otherwise handicapped wild animals, takes care of abandoned babies, and provides them professional treatment and enables their return to the wild when possible.


  • The only feeder used is a simple basket that is filled each day halfway to avoid wasting food. You can’t see it, but the feeding station has a Plexiglas roof that keeps the rain off the seeds.
  • Sunflowers, nuts, corn, rowan berries.
  • Greenfinch, Coal Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Collared Dove, Tree Sparrow, Eurasian Jay, Great and Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Hawfinch, Eurasian Red Squirrel, Pine Marten, Hedgehog, Tawny Owl, mice, and more!

  1. I can’t believe I’m watching a real-time bird feeder cam from the comfort of my own home! The footage from Bird Watching HQ is incredible and I’m loving the variety of birds I’m seeing. I feel like I’m right there in the midst of it all. Thanks for sharing these amazing cams, I’m hooked!

  2. Hello!
    I have noticed recently that the Poland cam is not working, only to find out that 7 out of 9 cams presented here are not working. Any idea why this is happening?

  3. I’m now getting Birmingham and Alberta cams are Private. Is this my computer or their cams.? Btw, love these sites. Thank you

  4. Oh there’s also the bald eagle cams on YouTube FOBBV aka Big Bear Eagle Live Nest Cam. Can also find them at FriendsofBigBearValley.org . They are waiting on their second chick to pip!

  5. You should check out Brownville’s Food Pantry For Deer on Facebook and YouTube! They have 5 cams set up. 4 are different angles of their 8 food troughs, and one is called Ryan’s Bird Buffet where you get morning doves, bluejays, squirrels, mice, and even deer munching away on one of 3 stations! The owner Richard who’s a sweet older man, goes out b/w 8:30-9:00 every day to refill all stations! It’s part of our morning routine with our cats 😹 they will stare at the tv until we put it on. We call it their channel. It’s based in Brownville, Maine! Ryan btw is the grandson you will see from time to time.

  6. I also have a Bird Cam Live stream myself located just south of you in Powell Ohio! I have multiple Camera’s Pointed at different Angles and I also Change scenes and Camrea angles etc. I have Three PTZ Cams with one Portable cam that I will put on stream from time to time. Shoot me a email Scott if you like more info! Love to share my Birds with everyone!

  7. Is that a palm warbler on the Birmingham, Alabama feeder at just before 12pm on 21st Dec 2021? I’m a birder in Scotland, so very exciting to see so many unfamiliar species!

  8. Been an avid birdwatcher for 45+ years, but the Czech site has helped with my identification skills. Also first time I have regularly seen a Hawfinch. Interesting to watch the different types of behaviour of certain birds.

  9. Does anyone know what the set up for the bubbling water bath in the German setting might be? I have a water dish in my garden but the birds don’t go anywhere near it!

  10. Hi. These cameras are great. I am having trouble accessing some of them, namely Poland, Soutt Africa and the Netherlands. Do they sometimes go offline for a time? Thanks for a great resource.

  11. Do you have any suggestions on how to keep robins from terrorizing oriole feeders? They’ve become territorial and are bullying the orioles away from the jelly feeders. I put up nectar feeders and now have a gaggle of screaming robins and confused orioles. Thanks much!

    (Absolutely love all the bird cams!)

  12. My cat and I live in Cincinnati and enjoy watching your Ohio cam. I was intrigued by the feeder for the Baltimire Orioles with what appeared to be jam in the wells. I read an article yesterday and learned that it it, indeed, grape jam. We tune in every morning. Thank you!

  13. Really love looking at these feeding stations, especially watching the goldfinches in Wigan… thank you 😊

  14. Just wanted to thank you for posting this! I’m a teacher in NJ and I linked you to my preschoolers since they are currently learning from home due to covid19 quarantine. So great to have resources like yours to keep the kids learning!
