Watch baby falcons in their high-rise suburban nests

Three cameras are providing streaming video of falcon nests as peregrine falcon chicks are fed and cared for by their parents. 

The cameras are a part of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s efforts to bring this endangered species back. They were originally cliff-nesting birds, so nest boxes were placed on smokestacks and building ledges or roofs in the Kansas City area.
