Du Bois Library Falcons

Thank You!

Thanks to Falcon Fans like you, more than $1,700 was raised this spring to offset the cost of the live broadcast, camera repairs, and maintenance. Thank you!


The Falcon Cam will go offline on August 31, 2015. Please go to the Libraries' Facebook page to view the "2015 Falcon Season Recap" which includes a summary of this season along with 75 photos presented in timeline fashion. Thank you so much for making this season one to remember!

Peregrine Falcons have successfully nested on the roof of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at UMass Amherst for the past 13 years.  A live webcam was installed in 2013 thanks to the UMass Amherst Facilities Planning Division, UMass Amherst Information Technology, the Libraries' Systems and Web Management Department, the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife), and the Friends of the Libraries.
