The 2017 Falcon Cam has been Discontinued

UPDATE (April 28) -- Due to the nesting location of the falcons, as well as ongoing technical issues with the camera, the 2017 Falcon Cam has been discontinued. While we made a concerted effort to establish a quality view of the scrape and chicks – who do appear to be doing well! – the combination of limited visibility and our desire to allow the nesting season to continue without incident for the birds has led to this decision.

Here's hoping for a better view next year!

What is Falcon Cam? High atop a building in downtown Dayton perches the fastest couple in Dayton, a pair of peregrine falcons. The Falcon Cam reveals the daily activities of this once endangered species as they successfully raise their family on the ledge on the 23rd floor of the Liberty Savings Tower. The camera allows an up close view of the falcons as they raise their young from hatching to their first flights. Through the Falcon Cam wildlife biologists can monitor the health of the peregrine falcons and assist in the conservation of the species.

The Boonshoft Museum's Falcon Cam runs from mid-March through early June, and follows the nesting of Peregrine falcons Daniel and "Dayton" as they nest atop the Liberty Savings Tower in downtown Dayton.
