Hatching Soon for Peregrine Falcon Nest in Jersey City



Viewers of the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's Peregrine Webcam can expect to see increased activity now that hatching is imminent.  The birds have been incubating five eggs the past month.

The webcam broadcasts from atop 101 Hudson St. in Jersey City.  Since 2001, Nestbox News has chronicled the nesting activity, providing detailed information about each year's activity. (See Nestbox News at http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/peregrinecam/jcp-2012nestnews.htm for this year's and previous years' accounts). There are links to the live video as well as current still images from that page.

The Peregrine Project relies on public support.  Much of that support is from The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ, a non-profit organization which works closely with the division's Endangered and Nongame Species Program. To make a donation, go directly to their Donate Now Web site at partners.guidestar.org .
