- Info: Live streaming webcams featuring peregrine falcons breeding, nesting and raising their young at the Great Spirit Bluff in Minnesota. The nest box is placed on the side of the cliff face. There are two webcams with views inside the nest box and outside.
Many peregrine falcons migrate thousands of miles to spend the winter in Mexico and Central and South America but some overwinter in the United States, including Minnesota. They return to their northern breeding grounds in late April to early May. Generally 2-3 eggs are laid and hatchlings usually fledge at 42 days, but they remain with their parents for several more weeks while learning to fly and hunt.
