Get an inside look at the nests of the fastest birds on Earth through the live nest cameras in Massachusetts. These cameras are pointed directly at or are within nest boxes and allow an up close live look at nesting pairs and their chicks. Peregrine Falcons nest on rocky cliffy, as well as manmade structures such as buildings and bridges. Chicks hatch in early May and leave the nest in mid-June (at about 7 weeks of age).
