Chesapeake Conservancy
"Give a big welcome to Boh and Barb, the newest members of our wildlife webcam family!

Get to know and love another of the Chesapeake's charismatic species with the Conservancy's newest wildlife webcam. Watch Baltimore's peregrine falcons to follow these incredible birds up to the 33rd-floor ledge of the Transamerica skyscraper in downtown Baltimore. Just like the Osprey Cam, the live stream will bring viewers up close and personal with these long-term Baltimore City residents. Peregrine falcons have been living on the 33rd-floor ledge of 100 Light Street near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for over 35 years."

Link to Cam

The below post is from Bonnie, who brought the cam to our attention on the Chat thread.  Thanks Bonnie  flower
Lovely view here.

(Didn't know where to post this, in case anyone is interested:  Chesapeake Conservancy has a  Peregrine Falcon cam... the 'original' female has been displaced (it was noted that she may have an injury to her right eye...).  The female that has taken over the 'nest' is banded!  Although it appears that viewers have not been able to ID  the band - CC has contacted a biologist who will be visiting the site next week - to try to get a good look at the band.  Interesting....  bigsmile

Not sure if this is the one that was on the ledge or if the female returned as I wasn't watching.
Whoever it is, did what they should do and rolled the egg. bigsmile bigsmile

Oh Boy!  Thanks, Sherri!
One (or both? - not sure) of the falcons is/are banded... a biologist is scheduled to visit the nest this week to check them out and try to identify them (the bands have not been legible on the cam)

Good Morning... A biologist is going to the site soon (this week?) to see if the band(s) on the falcon(s?) can be identified.  Clear ID's have not been possible on the cam.  Should be interesting.

Thank you for the updates, bonbon, much appreciated. I hope to be able to watch this cam soon as I have been away from home for a while.

From Chesapeake Conservancy's FB page:
"Good evening falcon camera followers! We were able to gather a brief biography of the new Barb, thanks to a site visit by a regional USFWS Raptor Biologist. Barb is a 2 year old from Philadelphia, PA, and has 3 siblings who were born alongside her in a church steeple. She is previously unnamed and her tags are black over green (both horizontal), reading "09" and "AR" respectively. Wishing Barb a belated welcome to Baltimore!"
