In 1978, a peregrine falcon named Scarlett made her home on the 33rd floor ledge of Baltimore’s Transamerica building. In the decades since, Scarlett’s fellow falcons have continue to nest on the downtown skyscraper.
For the first time, Transamerica, the City of Baltimore, Shared Earth Foundation and a few others have teamed up to install a webcam that lets you spy on the birds as they embark on their spring nesting season. The birds’ thriving existence in downtown Baltimore is extra-inspiring considering that the species almost went extinct in the last century. Fortunately, conservation efforts succeeded at bringing population levels back up.
Want to know what they’re up to right now? Take a look.
