If you enjoy watching April the giraffe live on YouTube, then you may be interested in these other animal cams. In the following playlists, you’ll find live cams streaming from the Animal Adventure Park (April the giraffe) and popular bald eagles such as the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam (SWFL Eagle Cam) and the Decorah-North bald eagle nest. The SWFL eagle cam features eagles Harriet, M15, and E9, and the Decorah Nest features Ma and Pa with DN4 and DN5. DN6 passed away on April 4, 2017.
When watching live animal cams, it’s important to remember you are seeing nature as it happens. Some YouTube feeds, such as April the giraffe or kittens and animals from farms, do include human interaction. For the most part, once a cam is set up live, humans want to have as little contact with the nest activity or animals that are being filmed. This can mean witnessing heartbreaking or even gruesome events as they unfold live streaming online. The loss of DN6 was very sad but many have enjoyed watching DN4 and DN5 thrive. A previous cam featuring seven owl eggs resulted in the failure of six eggs to hatch and the mother owl finally consuming her youngest owlet. Keep in mind when watching live YouTube cams that there is no assurance everything will have a happy and pleasant ending.
In addition to the playlists featured below, you can always watch live YouTube cams featuring animals such as April the giraffe, E9, and more in the official YouTube video feed. YouTube automatically updates this feed with the newest and most popular animal cams several times per day.
Watch Live Animals: YouTube Cams Automatically Update
April the Giraffe from Animal Adventure Park
April the giraffe is currently the most popular live YouTube cam available to watch online. With more than 100,000 viewers watching at any given moment, April has gone viral and captivated the world. She is a 15-year-old pregnant reticulated giraffe that lives at the Animal Adventure Park (AAP) located in Harpursville, New York. April became pregnant at some point in 2015, and her exact due date is unknown. The AAP set up a live giraffe cam on February 10, 2017, expecting her to give birth relatively soon.
The promise and appeal to the public have been to watch April deliver her calf via YouTube’s live stream. Instead of an imminent delivery, April remains pregnant, and many people are still watching and waiting for active labor to begin. This is April’s fourth calf, but the first born at the park. You can watch April live on YouTube via the giraffe cam in the video playlist below.
SWFL Eagles: Harriet, M15, and E9

You can watch the Southwest Florida Eagle cam live streaming from YouTube in the video player below.
