Sometimes seeing wildlife and experiencing the great outdoors is as easy as sitting on your couch and pulling out your laptop. There's a live wildlife webcam in Arizona that shows a nesting great horned owl. And her eggs are about to hatch, too.
The Arizona Fish and Game Department offers you an awesome way to get up close and personal with some of the state's coolest inhabitants without disturbing the animals or endangering anyone.
Their live webcams focus on a variety of animals, including bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and even desert pupfish. Our favorite, though, is the momma great horned owl.
You can see this amazing bird up close on the website. The camera is focused directly on the nest, so you get a spectacular view.
The website was updated on March 3, and proclaimed that the eggs would be hatching in a few weeks. Here we are, a few weeks from March 3, waiting for those cute babies to appear on screen!
In the meantime, however, we get to watch her protect her nest and keep her eggs warm.
It's awesome to watch this animal in her natural habitat and it's even cooler that she will be welcoming newborn owlets soon.
The bald eagle nest has been the hot spot of attention in past seasons, but they moved to a new nesting spot recently, and the department hasn't set up a new webcam location yet.
You can still try to catch a glimpse of them here.
Once they've hatched, the little fluffy owlets look like mini aliens until they grow into their tufted feathers. Look how cute they are!
Make sure to stay tuned for the hatching of these owls, it's going to be so cool to check in on these birds up-close.
