Sadly, the snowy owl cam will not be operating again this year. But the good news is that snowy owl nests have been located in Barrow, Alaska: https://explore.org/livecams/owl-resear ... esting-cam
July 14, 2021- Update!
Hi All! I was able to get a quick update today from Denver up in Alaska, and he sent some photos and videos of the chicks. All photos and video courtesy of Tabby Fuson, who is up in Alaska doing research on climate change as part of the University of Texas El Paso.

This video shows five Snowy Owl chicks in their nest, huddled together for warmth in the cold wind. Snowy Owl eggs hatch asynchronously, or at different times, so these chicks range in age from 21 days old to 14 days old. There is one egg in the nest, which will not hatch at this point. The oldest two chicks are ready to leave the nest on foot, and will soon begin exploring away from the nest. “They will then roam the tundra being fed and protected by their parents, until fledging at about 45 to 55 days old,” said Denver Holt.
