Jersey City Falcon Cam

Welcome to the 19th season of the Jersey City Falcon Cam! Since 2000, state endangered peregrine falcons have nested on a skyscraper rooftop in Jersey City, New Jersey. This year three orphan falcons were fostered at this nest. The camera(s) will be online again in March 2019.

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 19th season of 24/7 live streaming video, which is the oldest online streaming wildlife focused 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. If you have any technical problems, please email Ben Wurst.

This was somewhat of a depressing season for loyal Falcon Cam viewers. The new pair did produce an egg but failed to incubate it. We believe the male was lost during the beginning of the nesting season and was replaced by another non-banded male.
