• WATCH: National Aviary launches African Penguin nest cam


    The National Aviary launched a penguin nest cam on Wednesday. 

    The infrared camera will give the public the opportunity to watch the hatching of two African Penguin chicks. The breed is critically endangered. 

    The camera shows the nesting cave in the Penguin Point exhibit where two penguins are incubating a pair of eggs. The penguins are parents to three other sets of penguins hatched at the National Aviary.

    They expect the penguin chicks to remain in the nest for the first three weeks, and then they will be moved inside to be cared for. 

    You can watch the the penguin cam live at www.PenguinNestCam.org.
