Du Bois Library Falcons

Thank you so much for your gifts to the Falcon Cam this season!

This live stream is made possible by support from viewers like you!

The young falcon hatched on May 21 and was banded on the morning of June 13. His band number is 90 Black over BS Green. He fledged on the morning of June 30. Follow the falcons on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date news.

Peregrine Falcons have successfully nested on the roof of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst for the past 13 years. The mated pair from 2015 returned this season. A live webcam was installed in 2013 thanks to the UMass Amherst Facilities Planning Division, UMass Amherst Information Technology, the Libraries' Systems and Web Management Department, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife), and the Friends of the Libraries.
