W.E.B. Du Bois Falcons
Anyone who donates to the Falcons of Du Bois Library fund by May 21st will be entered into a drawing to participate in the banding of the chicks, which is slated to occur in late May. Banding is scheduled at short notice, so the winner must be available to attend when the time and date are announced.
A pair of Peregrine Falcons, which have successfully nested on the roof of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst for the past 11 years, have a live webcam thanks to the UMass Amherst Facilities Planning Division, the Office of Information Technology (OIT), the Libraries' Systems and Web Management Department, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife), and the Friends of the Libraries.
Thank you for visiting the Du Bois Library Falcons website.
