Peregrine falcons are one of only two birds that can be found worldwide, except Antarctica. Can you name the other bird? Conserve Wildlife Foundation is happy to partner with Union County to stream this falcon nest live from the roof of the County Courthouse in downtown Elizabeth, New Jersey. Below was developed to allow Union County Falcon Cam viewers to post comments, questions, and photos about the Union County Courthouse falcons.
Please keep any questions or comments on this related to this particular nest and falcons in New Jersey. Any other posts will be moderated appropriately. Thank you for your participation! With no activity at the JC eyrie, we'll be writing some brief updates here to summarize events. Then the second and third eggs hatched on April 28 and the forth hatched on April Falcons don't incubate until a full clutch is laid and is why they hatch very closely. After hatching they are downy and can see, but need very close parental care. They were given medication for the treatment of trichomoniasis, which is a disease carried by pigeons that can kill young falcons, one of the main prey items of urban nesting falcons.
The young were brought inside where they were medicated and then placed back in the nestbox. The adults were upset, but returned to care for their young once they were placed back in the nestbox. The young will be banded in another couple weeks, when they get to be around weeks old.
This Falcon Cam will provide an enriching experience for County residents of all ages, and for online visitors from all over the world. A pair first attempted to build a nest on the roof of the County Courthouse in , but windy conditions were an obstacle. In County workers installed a repurposed dog house to provide a wind shield, acting on the guidance of wildlife experts with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Every year until , the same nesting pair has raised chicks in the doghouse since then. In , this nesting pair had four eggs, beating the statewide average of 2.
They also hatched all four to achieve a percent success rate, well above the average rate of 71 percent. However, earlier this year in a new female took up residence in the nest. Thanks to the partnership, offspring from the County Courthouse pair have been observed around the tri-state region, where they have raised chicks of their own. The new Falcon Cam live stream includes two cameras. One provides a view of the nest interior and an infrared video image for night time viewing.
An audio feed will also be available later this year. The other web cam is located at a nest in Jersey City and is managed by the biologists of Conserve Wildlife Foundation. Through interactive and engaging classroom and assembly presentations, our experienced educators bring wildlife into your school. Students are fascinated to discover that these raptors nest and raise young each year right in their own backyards! Teachers receive structured lessons and interactive activities to address the Next Generation Science Standards for grades Learning about their wildlife neighbors helps children to connect to their community and teaches children to consider how their everyday actions impact the natural world around them.
CWF is offering individual and corporate sponsorships of public outreach and environmental education in Union County centered on the Falcon Cam. CWF seeks to provide educational programs, lesson plans, curriculum development, and educational field trips for schools within Union County. The nest failed this year.
