A NOTE ABOUT THE PEREGRINE FALCON WEBCAMS:
Yes, the live video camera at Dorothy’s nest is blurry.
We installed a new camera in late January hoping for better color and focus. Unfortunately condensation has formed inside the housing — probably a manufacturing flaw. We cannot fix or replace the camera right now. Dorothy is nesting and we are not allowed to disturb her. The good news is that this camera has a microphone so you can hear what’s going on.

The snapshot camera is a second camera on the nest. It produces a photo every 15 seconds at this link. If you right-click on the photo and choose “Save As” you can save the snapshot pictures. That’s how Peter got a photo of Dorothy laying her first egg.
