Just outside a cave on California’s remote Anacapa Island lives a family of peregrine falcons. Since 2013, the adult couple has nested here; watch as they lay and protect their eggs and feed and nurture their hatchlings until they are ready to fledge.
This cam overlooks the nest of a peregrine falcon family on Anacapa Island, part of Channel Islands National Park off the coast of southern California.
Named for the deep troughs that separate them from the mainland, the eight islands and their encircling waters are home to over 2,000 species of animals and plants—145 are found nowhere else on Earth. Isolation over thousands of years and the mingling of warm and cold ocean currents give rise to the rich biodiversity of these islands. Today, five of the islands, their submerged lands, and the waters within one nautical mile of each island are protected as Channel Islands National Park.
Best Times to Watch
The Channel Islands’ falcon cam runs 24 hours a day. And although you will only be able to see birds/animals during daylight hours, we invite you to also check out the sunrise and sunset at this location. Both are extraordinary!
