Sponsored by Alessondra's OKC Owl Cam

Alessondra is a homeschooled 8-year-old from Oklahoma City who loves owls, learning, and teaching others. She also has a heart for helping, especially when it comes to fellow Oklahoma children, one in four of whom battle hunger.

Alessondra's Great Horned Owl Cam is a live webcam about a family of Great Horned Owls that have made Alessondra's 2nd story planter box their nest. Her Dad set up a camera to stream video so that Alessondra and the rest of the family could view it on a site called Ustream. Over the past few years, the stream has received millions of views, with spectators enjoying the education and entertainment of watching the "Tiger Family" of owls lay eggs, brood them, and raise owlets to fledge. Through this process, Alessondra, provides commentary and educates viewers through the process through video updates, online chats, live speaking appearances in local schools, and stories on the news.

You can view the OKC Owl Cam live now at:

Why A Fundraiser About Hunger?

Through this experience, viewers get a front row view of nature at its best; a mother and father owl, able to provide an abundance of food for their young ones to hopefully thrive and eventually have families of their own.

The human race, however, is much more complicated. Too often, people aren't fully able to make ends meet and provide food for themselves or their families. We, the Click Family, believe we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to come to the aid of those in need.

Viewers from all over the world have offered to provide financial assistance or gifts to cover the costs of the stream, or to say "Thanks!". The Clicks have committed to never commercializing the stream or benefitting financially from it.

As a way to offer viewers an opportunity to contribute in some small way, Alessondra has created the "Give A Hoot About Hunger" campaign.

Hear from Alessondra herself about why she chose to launch the "Give A Hoot About Hunger" campaign:

How You Can Give A Hoot

One in six Oklahomans has inconsistent access to food, and one in four children is considered hungry. Every $1 donated to the Regional Food Bank will provide 5 meals to our neighbors in need.

Please "Give A Hoot About Hunger" and join us in fighting hunger in Oklahoma! By making a direct donation just $5 from this page, you can provide 25 meals to children and adults dealing with hunger.

Thank you, the Click Family, the moderators, all the technical help, chatters and all those involved in such a wonderful experience. It has given me many hours of enjoyment and angst at the GHOs antics. I have always believed that all of God's creatures were connected in love, caring and joy and this web cam proved it...

What a joy watching nature at it's finest- thanks to the Click family for sharing these beautiful owls. We really enjoy watching them.
It was a privilege to donate to "Give a Hoot about Hunger". We also give to our local pantry, so many people need help & it's what we try to do.

Thanks so much for hosting this beautiful site! It was such a pleasure to watch the Tiger family grow from eggs to gorgeous owls.
The Click family is beyond owlsome ~ Alessondra has a bright future and should be so proud of a successful fundraiser and her public speaking requests. She is just adorable.
It has been a real pleasure watching this site and getting to know this family - who are such a wonderful representation of exemplary and kind human beings.
This website is by far the most well managed, organized, professional and informative place to learn about nature, GHO's and warm hearts.

What a treat to sit in her nest and watch a mother owl raise a family! To be so close, watch them grow. I am sure you see many many parallels about growing up, too! Thank you. We give honor to the spirits of the animals given up for their food. And we thank your dad and robot cameras! And the volunteers "who gonna clean up that mess!"
