Please Note: Illinois Peregrine webcams are active April - July.
Watch the progress of nesting Peregrine Falcons through live streaming webcams!
Thanks to the generous support of our site hosts who fund and maintain their web cameras, we are able to peer into the nests of a few of Illinois’ Peregrine families.
NRG - Waukegan Our Waukegan site has been active since 2001.
Since then, more than 50 young have fledged from here.
Each spring it is important to identify the adults.
Try to read the leg bands if/when the adult gets close to the camera.
Last year (2017) for unknown reasons, the falcons abandoned the site.
We have great hopes that they will use the nest box again this year.
South Loop In 2016, we had a new female (Bob, and yes, her name is Bob) paired with the unbanded Mr. In 2017, Bob returned and was seen courting with a new unbanded male. This year (2018) Bob was grounded after a territorial fight and is in rehab.
We can confirm an unbanded male seen with an adult female. We'll just have to wait and see if they breed successfully this year.
UIC - University of Illinois at Chicago Interesting to note - the location of this nest is on the same building as used in 1986 as our first release site.
The building is undergoing renovations, but the adults have been present on the nest ledge.
Once the renovations are complete, the Peregrines will have improved ledge conditions for future nesting.
