ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (AP) - A high-definition camera trained on a burrow near the nation's northernmost city is allowing researchers and any bird watcher with an internet connection an unfettered view into the nesting den of an arctic snowy owl.
The camera went live this week and is trained on the nesting site where as many as six chicks are beginning to emerge from the burrow near barrow, Alaska.
It's the latest addition in wildlife camera offerings of explore.org.
This camera allows researchers glimpses into the daily lives of snowy owls, like noting how many times a male will bring food to the female to monitoring the eating habits of both parents.
The microphone on the remotely controlled camera also allows researchers to hear what is happening, too.
