- Peregrine Falcon Nest Webcam Live in Downtown Boise
The daily life of a wild peregrine falcon family in downtown Boise is once again on view via a web camera in the next box.
This is the fourth year that the webcam has followed the daily activities at a nest box on the 14th floor of One Capital Center, 10th and Main streets. The webcam may be seen at: A http://peregrinefund.org/subsites/webcam-peregrine/.
The nest box has been used each spring since 2003. Last year, four chicks successfully fledged from the nest, though one died about a month later from injuries suffered in a collision.
The ledge where the nest box is located simulates the high, steep cliffs the falcons use in the wild. The falcons, which strictly eat other birds, prey on a plentiful supply of pigeons, mourning doves, starlings and other birds downtown.
