UB Falcon Cam Gets Upgraded To Streaming Video

UB might have dropped the ball with Buffalo CarShare, but when it comes to watching out for the falcons that live on South Campus, they are doing a tremendous job. I mean that with all sincerity. I was impressed when the university first launched the Falcon Cam, showing the daily life of its resident birds in series of six-second pieced-together clips.

That electric eye on the falcons was impressive, though not nearly as impressive as the streaming live camera that has now been installed in order to capture seamless footage of the nest.

UB staff members along with the Department of Environmental Conservation and the Buffalo Audubon Society installed the camera to record activity of the rare birds. For years, Buffalonians and researchers were able to study the falcon cam at The Statler. That camera went dark when the building was mothballed.
