Peregrine Falcon Webcam Views

Many visitors to the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife web site are familiar with the Peregrine Webcam which streams video from Jersey City.  Fortunately there are another estimated 20 nests found throughout the state, from river bridges to coastal nesting platforms to the Palisades and beyond.

Star-Ledger videographer Andre Malok recently accompanied biologist Kathy Clark on banding day in Atlantic City. There, for the past 20 years, peregrines have been nesting on a ledge outside a Hilton Casino penthouse suite.  His video provides a "bird's eye view" of the nest area, biologists at work, and the reactions of hotel staff.

To view Andre's video visit http://videos.nj.com/star-ledger/2010/06/peregrine_falcons_nesting_on_t.html on the NJ.com website.
