Welcome to the Home of the Utica Peregrine Falcon Project

The 2017 season is wrapping up. All four youngsters have apparently left the area, although Max has come back a few times. Astrid and Ares continue to hold the territory and they occasionally visit the nest box. Visit our Latest News page for updates on what the Utica falcons are up to or go to our Facbook page: Falcon Watch Utica.


Check our Falcon Cams page for the best live view! 

We recommend the Overkill view – new this season!!

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!
