Just consolidating together these 4 wonderful U-streamed nestcams (all from Calif.), to keep you entertained while we await any IBWO news for this search season. Great and fascinating stuff, peering into the family/nesting lives of species, as rarely observed by humans before:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/Two-Harbors-Cam (Bald Eagles)
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/Hummingbird-Nest-Cam (Allen's Hummingbird)
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/allen-s-humminbird-nest (another Allen's Hummingbird, with babies)

There are lots of other nestcams worldwide, but these 4 are particularly good and varied, and can keep one mesmerized for a good while. The first 3 are currently sitting on eggs, and the real fun starts when chicks appear and child-rearing begins, as in the 4th one. Hats off to the folks running these sites (which include chat rooms, BTW).

Of course there's still a certain woodpecker nestcam we'd all really like to see...

One other note worth mentioning: Bill Benish recently started a blog exclusively devoted to Campephilus woodpeckers that is definitely worth perusing for all the woodpecker-philes out there:

Thanks a lot for mentioning my blog here cyberthrush! I hope people who drop by enjoy their visit.
Sure Bill; great blog and wonderful pics/images. And Ivorybill-specific fans can click on "Ivory-billed Woodpecker" in the right-hand topic-list to see all the previous posts that mention IBWO.
