Please join us Saturday night in the observance of Earth Hour.

Rfalconcam will turn off the cameras at the nest boxes located on the Times Square* and Powers buildings for one hour starting at 8:30 PM EDT. During that time, we ask that you turn off your lights, computers, and non-essential electrical appliances. Of course, we understand that those who recently lost power as a result of the wind storm may not want to participate.

Beauty Lays Her First Egg of 2016 Tonight at 9:54 pm! – 3/23/16

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

There were many falcon fans gathered to watch our live streaming video this evening. What was all the eggcitement about? Beauty, our downtown Rochester Peregrine Falcon was in the process of laying her first egg. It was like a virtual waiting room.

At 9:54 pm, Beauty laid her egg in the nest box on top of the Times Square Bldg in Rochester, NY. The falcons had been visiting this nest box and the nest box at the Powers Building. So until tonight, we were unsure which nest box they would choose.

Click here to link to our live streaming video.

Here are the first images of the egg captured by our Rfalconcam cameras.
