Brown Bear Live Web Cam

I love watching the brown bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska's Katmai National Park fish for salmon.  Today, there seems to be more salmon in the river, at least, more salmon are jumping the falls and the brown bears are eating more often than this weekend.  Last night, I observed one of the brown bears stationed at the top of the falls catch a salmon in mid air.  I cheered out loud.

There is an excellent guide to the brown bears that visit the falls, many of them are named; Snaggletooth, Popeye and One-toe showing their markings and life history.  Watching these bears on live camera is a wonderful treat and its courtesy of Explore.org and the Annenberg Foundation.   The live camera just started a few weeks ago.
