High atop the Tappan Zee Bridge is a nest box that is home to a pair of peregrine falcons. These birds of prey mate for life. Nesting season is February through August, and we hope to see some new chicks in the spring. You can watch it all unfold in real time thanks to a live “Falcon Cam.”
The male falcon arrived at the nest on Tuesday, and we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of his mate. Perhaps a Valentine’s Day reunion is in the works? UPDATED 2/27/15: Two falcons are now in the nest.
