Jersey City Falcon Cam
Welcome to the 18th season of the Jersey City Falcon Cam! Since 2000, state endangered peregrine falcons have nested on a skyscraper rooftop in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Welcome to the home of the Jersey City Falcon Cam – a popular webcam that has captured the annual life cycle of a pair of state endangered Peregrine falcons nesting on a Jersey City skyscraper. This is the 18th season of 24/7 live streaming video, which is the oldest online streaming wildlife camera in New Jersey. In 2014, Conserve Wildlife Foundation undertook a fundraising effort to save the Falcon Cam, which was run by the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife's Endangered and Nongame Species Program. We'd like to thank everyone who donated to help keep the Falcon Cam online!! Please consider making a donation to support the Jersey City Falcon Cam.
Above you see two views: one from outside of the nestbox, and one from inside the nestbox (currently not online; will be activated when more activity picks up). If you have any technical problems, please email Ben Wurst.

2018 Nestbox News
I highlighted this in our blog post which summarized the 2017 nesting season - BD/62 was re-sighted by her band in DeKorte Park in the Meadowlands in September, so we know she’s alive and well in North Jersey! The Falcon Cam will begin streaming in March for the 2018 nesting season. BW
We visited 101 Hudson St. this week. We had to make changes to the local network upon restarting internet service. Everything turned on and started working right away. We went out on the roof check the nestbox and clean off the lens covers. The male was present (pictured above). Our camera consultant got a snapshot of the female, so she is around too. If you catch screenshots/photos, make sure to post to our Interaction page!
