A momma tiger at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, Michigan gave birth to three cubs in September. The playful tykes are now Internet stars. You can watch them on the webcam through early December 2012. Feeding times are approximately 8am, 12pm, 4pm, and 10pm EST.

Massachusetts Representative Edward J. Markey, chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, requested that BP make its real-time camera feed of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill available to the public. And BP did. In theory, you can watch video of the oil spill on the Energy and Commerce Committee's website. But too many people wanted to see it--I sure did!--and ECC's servers are down.

There's a link to the feed on the NYTimes' Green blog, if you want to check back later.

UPDATE: the video feed is available again, although servers are still crashing intermittently. (5/21 a.m.)

Lily, a 3-year-old pregnant black bear, made her den near a cabin in Ely, MN. Access to electricity, etc., meant that researchers were able to install a web cam in Lily's winter quarters. And today, their efforts may be rewarded. Biologist Lynn Rogers told the Associated Press that he thinks Lily's labor started today at around 2 pm. We should see cubs in the very near future.

Looks like "Athena" and the unidentified male from last year have been hanging out at the nest box on the stack of the High Bridge power plant. We'll be switching the critter cam to feature the falcons soon. In the meantime, check out the High Bridge falcon forum, or read up on last year's nest.
