Thanks to the generosity of one of our donors, we secured the funding to set up this “eagle nest cam”….we have high hopes that this educational tool will prove both useful and entertaining to learners and virtual visitors to the Woodson Ranch alike.

While setting it up was accomplished through a donation, the ongoing maintenance of it and the hosting service fees will require support.  Please consider making a contribution to keep this amazing view available in perpetuity!

2017 turned into the year of the goose….and so did 2018, 2019, and 2020!  We keep pulling for eagles but getting geese.  Nonetheless, geese are people too, and we are optimistic that this site and our webcam will contribute to the ongoing body of knowledge regarding the biology of nesting birds.

Here is a 1-minute overview … literally … of the Woodson Ranch.  Taken by Alan Blakely of Blakely Photography fame, this birds-eye view of the ranch shows the incredible setting of the ranch.  We have approximately 8 river miles and riparian area which affords amazing fishing and wildlife view opportunities.

This 2-minute movie, replete with amazing audio, of some of the abundant bird life we have on the ranch in early spring. The audio recording was made at 5am near one of the wetlands on the ranch.

This video follows Clear Creek from the Ayote Ditch (which is where much of its water has historically been diverted–our project will avert that from happening going forward) to where it re-connects with the Ruby River.
