Spring Brings Falcon Cam Back

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Non-Game Wildlife section has once again installed the display monitors on ground floor of the Nebraska Capitol so staff and visitors alike can keep an eye on the Peregrine Falcon pair nesting on the east side of the Capitol’s tower. For the last few weeks the pair have been displaying mating behaviors and are spending more time in the nest box. the monitors are located int he southwest corner of the ground floor rotunda.  You may keep up with the falcons from home via Game and Parks Non-Game Bird Blog or watch them on the falconcam.
