Falcons Swoop In See Tappan Zee Peregrines Live Via Webcam

Print Friendly



Coming to you live from high above the Hudson River are the fastest members of the animal kingdom! The Tappan Zee Bridge’s peregrine falcons have returned to their man-made nest box to prepare for the nesting season and can be viewed on the project’s “FalconCam.”

Installed in the steel super structure of the existing bridge, the nest box is equipped with a live, 24/7 FalconCam, accessible here.

The remote FalconCam, located outside the nest box, provides close-up views of the lives of these amazing migratory raptors, which recently came back to reproduce. Peregrine eggs typically are laid in February and March and chicks hatch approximately one month later. Viewers may be able to watch as the chicks peck their way out of their eggs and are then fed and cared for by their parents.

As construction on the New NY Bridge project continues, a 100-foot buffer area is in place to help protect the falcons during their nesting period.

Maintained and monitored by the New York State Thruway Authority, the nest box evetappan zeentually will be relocated to a new perch in the towers of the new bridge.
