New York, NY, June 7, 2007 - New York City Audubon has launched the HeronCam!
The HeronCam is situated on an uninhabited island in New York City where herons and egrets, commonly known as the Harbor Herons, nest every summer. The HeronCam is a collaboration between New York City Audubon and NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, and it educates and informs large, new audiences about these magnificent birds by transmitting a live feed of nesting Harbor Herons, captured by a webcam, to a state-of-the-art website. The HeronCam also serves as a conservation tool, allowing researchers to study bird behavior and reproductive success in our urban environment.
