The famous peregrine falcons of Omaha's Woodmen Tower are back for the spring season. This nesting box has been home to peregrines since 1988. Since then, 74 chicks have hatched at the Woodmen Tower. This season, the peregrine parents have returned once again and a webcam allows everyone to watch the nesting progress of these once endangered falcons.
The webcam features not just chick-raising, but also the daily struggles of these peregrines. Sometimes the view you get is up close and intense! Such was the case in March 2015, when the webcam recorded a battle between the resident male and a rival male — and the rival happened to be the resident male's son from a previous year! Here's the footage:
Check out the livestream of the nest webcam, which also features a family tree of the falcons since the nesting box was created and facts about falcons. If you have an interest in the lives of falcons, this is one webcam livestream you'll want to have up in your browser!
