The Seattle BirdCam operates every day during US Pacific timezone daylight hours (GMT - 8 hours).

The Seattle BirdCam has been reborn as a blog. I'll be able to add fresh material - bird images, videos, and sound - more easily in this format.

Enjoy, and let me know of any improvements you think of!

I live not far from you in Magnolia right by Lawton Park. It's strange that the only birds I get around here are the house sparrows, chickadees, occasional flicker or waxwing. I'd love to see the one's you have, do you know if the wrens or other woodpeckers migrate this way? I even have a goldfinch sock with nijer but no visiters yet. I also have suet cake, sunflower hearts, birdbath,ect. I do love the ones that come by, though! Esp. the Chickadees. One day I hope to hand feed them. A pair had a brood in my nest box and all fledged successfully. Let me know if any of your visiters go anywhere else in Seattle, thanks!

Leanne, you should certainly see all the birds we do. I had a Nyjer feeder up for a while but never got more than an occasional Goldfinch visitor even though they were common in a blackberry patch two blocks away.
I'd be surprised if there weren't Bewick's Wrens in your neighbor because I've heard their songs all around the city. They don't come to my feeder, though, and they can be tough to spot because they move around so quickly.
I don't think the Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers like to stray far from the woods, so unless you're right up against the park they may not visit your suet very often.
Congratulations on the successful Chickadee family! I've had nest boxes up for the last two years with no success, although last year we did have a pair of Bushtits build a nest in a Lilac bush right next to our porch.

Thanks for this cam. I moved to Tucson, AZ two yrs ago and have missed Seattle very much since. I visit Seattle web cams every day and am very happy to see that this one is available once again. Is this cam still in Carkeek Park? Carkeek Park is my fav place and even a small peak is appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for your note, Reed. I put up the birdcam specifically to share the fun of the birdfeeder with people, so I appreciate hearing from those who enjoy it. The birdfeeder is in my backyard, which abuts Carkeek Park.
