Welcome to the Home of the Utica Peregrine Falcon Project

Do you enjoy watching our live nest cams?
If you answered yes then please consider donating to keep the live feed streaming.
We need to raise $3000 to keep our cameras streaming this year. It has been a goal of ours to not have ads on our live feeds and to do so we need to pay for the streaming service.
Just click the donate tab at the top of this page and it will guide you through the process. If you prefer to send donations directly to us they can be mailed to Utica Peregrine Falcon Project, 121 Eastwood Drive, Herkimer, NY 13350
As much as we dislike asking for help we simply cannot pay for this out of our own pockets as we have previously done with some of the equipment purchases. Many of you have been very generous in the past and we wouldn’t have all the cameras without that help!
Thank you all for your past and continued support of this project!!!

Peregrine falcons have been resident in the downtown Utica, NY area for ten years. Our original pair Maya and Tor, arrived in 2007.  Our current pair, Astrid and Ares have been resident since 2013.  More information can be found on the Historical Info menu.

Please help us to enhance this project by donating! We will always need additional funding as we plan to continually expand and enhance the project. Possible options include additional nest sites for Peregrines and other raptors.  We have also begun to bring an educational component into area schools. Thank you all for your continued support of this amazing project!
