Watch the Iowa DNR’s live FalconCam


Since 2003, a pair of peregrine falcons have made their home atop the MidAmerican Energy Building in Davenport, Iowa. Together they’ve raised more than a dozen chicks, with four more set to hatch around May 1st of this year.

A live streaming webcam has been installed to overlook the nest, and will be available until about June 10th.

Check out the livestream here, or read more about the FalconCam at the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

A pair of eggs were recently discovered in the nest of a famous Iowa bald eagle family, and thousands tuned in to observe the birds via a webcam installed by the Raptor Resource Project.

The first egg was laid on February 17th, and the second egg was laid on February 20th.

The webcam has earned the birds a fair bit of national attention – millions of viewers have accessed the camera since it’s installation in 2009.
