Monarch Place Falcon Cam

Posted: Updated:

Peregrine falcons nesting atop Springfield's Monarch Place recently laid eggs and you can watch their progress live. 

The falcons began nesting on the ledge on Monarch Place in 1989, and through those years, they have produced more than 30 offspring.

A nesting box was permanently attached to the side of the building to safeguard the eggs and falcons.

The 21st floor is occupied by Bank of America, but they were willing to set aside one office entirely for the falcons so they are not disturbed.

Four eggs were laid and successfully hatched in 2012.
