Welcome to the NYSDEC bird webcams page! Here you will find links to bird webcams operated by NYSDEC and other partners as well as links to other webcams located in New York State and elsewhere around the world. Currently our webcams feature nesting Peregrine Falcons, an endangered species in New York. These webcams generally operate from early spring to early summer until the young birds fledge from the nest. Watch this site for links to other bird webcams as new sites go online.
To watch nesting peregrines before daylight in the eastern United States try visiting the Derby Cathedral webcam in Derby, Derbyshire, UK. Daylight comes five hours earlier in England than in New York. A link to the webcam at the Cathedral can be found on the right hand side of this page.
Note: The webcam on the Dunn Memorial Bridge between Albany and Rensselaer will not be in operation during the spring 2014 nesting season.
