Peregrine Falcons at the Detroit Zoo

A new unidentied pair of Peregrine falcons are now residing in the Detroit Zoo’s water tower nest box. Last year’s couple, male Justice and female KJ who successfully fledged four chicks, have not returned to this nesting site. However, another banded bird from Ontario has been seen visiting the box – this could get interesting.

Thank you to the Michigan DNR for helping us with the nest box design, and also to Metro Wireless and Spiritech for helping with the network and camera setup. This live stream will be active from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily.

NOTE: these falcons are wild animals and free to come and go; there won’t always be activity in the nest box.
