The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is happy to announce that the Peregrine Webcam is once again streaming live video from the rooftop nestbox at 101 Hudson Street in Jersey City. Technical problems had prevented the live stream from being accessible to the public, but still images have been available for several weeks. The birds have been incubating four eggs since mid-April and hatching is expected around May 13th-14th.
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-2013nestnews.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. Due to the technical issues we experienced this year, and with the advent of new technology, the foundation will be raising funds for a new webcam configuration in addition to its continued support of this and other activities of the division's Endangered and Nongame Species Program.
