Bird Cams Highlights: Don’t Miss These Flying Condors, Grousing Grouse, and Hungry Hummingbirds

A Condor Family Takes Flight—Together
Enjoy this family moment from the California Condor cam when the condors take off over the canyon one after another. Fledgling #923 follows his parents’ lead with a steady flight after mom (wearing yellow tag #289) and dad (wearing blue tag #374) flap their enormous wings and fly out of view.
Listen to a Ruffed Grouse “Grousing” in Ontario
Ruffed Grouse have primitive vocal organs and don’t make any loud calls (the impressive thumping sounds they make in the spring are created with their wings). But as this individual demonstrates before departing from the Ontario FeederWatch cam’s platform, they can make a variety of soft chirping vocalizations.


Rivoli’s Hummingbird Sparkles While Sipping
Looking great comes naturally for this male Rivoli’s Hummingbird. In the right lighting on our West Texas Hummingbird Cam, these hummers reveal their spectacular metallic teal throat patch and purple crown. It’s not surprising that this species was known as Magnificent Hummingbird from the 1980s until 2017.
