Falcon Cam

Peregrine falcons regularly nest in the tower of Mackay Heating Plant, on the east side of the UB South Campus. Classified as an endangered species in New York State, peregrine falcons were wiped out from the Eastern United States in the 1960s, mainly due to pesticide residues in their prey. Thanks to protection efforts like the one at UB, NY’s falcons are on the rebound.
