Live Cam: UC Berkeley’s Peregrine Falcons

Thursday, April 30 - Tuesday, June 30

We are Annie and Grinnell, the Cal Falcons! We have been nesting on top of UC Berkeley’s historic Campanile since 2017. Come check out our live webcams to see what we’re up to!

“Peregrine Falcons, the worlds’ fastest bird, were almost completely wiped out from the western United States by the 1970’s. With the federal ban of DDT, populations have begun to recover and many Falcons have traded in natural cliffs and mountains for hunting in skyscraper “canyons” in many cities.

In December 2016, we first observed two Peregrine Falcons setting up a territory centered on the historic Campanile at UC Berkeley. After finding a makeshift nest on a sandbag in March 2017, we installed a temporary nest box to encourage a successful nesting effort.

In January of 2019, after a crowdfunding campaign generously supported by hundreds of people, we installed two webcams to monitor the nesting area and balcony. Thanks to the new webcams, we were able to monitor the breeding season in unprecedented detail!”
