Look at the Birds of the Air

Many people cannot walk through a forest to do bird watching but the Collaborative Observatory for Natural Environments (CONE) Sutro Forest is a new bird watching project in which you can participate from your computer.

An ultra-high resolution telerobotic camera is mounted outside a home that overlooks San Francisco's Sutro Forest.

You can log on to observe birds, take photos, and identify the different species.

Here is the link to look at the birds.
