Pitt Peregrine Falcon

Camera Update 5/25/15:

The peregrine falcon chick at the Cathedral of Learning is not doing well. We have removed the camera while we assess this situation. If you choose to view images from the nest you may still do so by clicking on the "Alternate Nest View" photo below. For the time being, you may access information via Kate St. John's Bird Blog linked below. We will provide more information tomorrow and determine whether to continue to stream the cam. Thank you.

Cam History:

In 2014 The National Aviary installed a new high definition camera at this nest site!

Peregrines have nested at the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning for 12 years.  Dorothy began nesting here in 2002 with her first mate, Erie. Her current mate, E2, arrived in the fall of 2007 when Erie disappeared. Dorothy fledged 22 chicks in seven years with Erie and 20 chicks since 2008 with E2.
