The National Aviary‘s webcams are “live” at the peregrine falcon nests in Pittsburgh!
This year the big innovation is streaming video at the Gulf Tower nest in downtown Pittsburgh, home of Tasha 2 and Louie. Watch to see Tasha lay her first egg sometime between March 10 and March 17.
At the University of Pittsburgh nest, home of Dorothy and E2, the camera is zoomed in so you can easily see egg laying and hatching. When the nestlings start to move the camera will pull back for the rest of the season so you can see all the action.
Watch for Dorothy’s first egg between March 23 and March 29. For an added treat, click on the photo above to see a slideshow of her bowing at the nest with her mate E2.
Both falconcams are managed by the Department of Conservation and Field Research at the National Aviary. Thanks to Dr. Todd Katzner for making it possible!
News updates! Tasha laid her first egg on March 12 at about 2:30pm, second egg on March 14th.
