Peregrine Falcon Cam

Pretty neat, being able to see 4 baby falcons. Haven't seen the parents yet, but I've only watched a few minutes so far, and just had to post the webcam link here.

Enjoy!

Thanks for that, it's pretty neat to see those little babies!

The last white falcon I recall is the white '64 that I learned to drive in!!

Cool you found that! There are peregrine cams in several Canadian cities, they are making a comeback and I've seen them in the skies downtown, it's pretty cool. When they are fledging, streamers are put on many of the glass office buildings to prevent them flying into it. They are so fast, even when fledging, that until they can control their speed, nearby office buildings are a big threat. They also stop traffic if the chicks land near roads. All in all, a pretty big effort for these birds. They are amazing fliers and when they make a kill, it's awesome!

Coolest pigeon control yet.
