Genesee Valley Audubon Society and Rochester Falconcam recently celebrated the hatchings of baby peregrine falcons.
The young falcons are being cared for by their mother, Beauty, and father, Dot. It will take five to six weeks for the falcons to mature enough to fly.
This is the 11th year Rochester Falconcam has monitored Rochester’s peregrine falcons atop the Times Square Building at the corner of Exchange Boulevard and Broad Street in Rochester. The public will be able to watch the falcons mature online through five cameras.
Peregrine falcons previously were classified as an endangered species.
“Genesee Valley Audubon Society is proud to offer Rochester and the world a window into the life of a peregrine falcon family,” said June Summers, GVAS president. “This is a great learning opportunity for families to share with their children this summer. We hope you visit the website often. Don’t miss an exciting minute.”
The website includes five cameras with a live streaming video, two blogs, discussion forums, a Facebook page, tweets from watchers on location, photo archives, falcon-themed merchandise and educational materials for teachers and school classes.
