Every year, 1201 Third is lucky enough to serve as a nesting place for the Peregrine Falcon. During the nesting and growth of the their young, Property Management works closely with a District Wildlife Biologist and the Urban Raptor Conservatory to closely monitor the falcons.
During the egg laying, hatching and fledgling process, we feature a ‘falcon cam’ where tenants and people around the world can check-in and watch these amazing birds. Join us on Tweet @1201Third with #1201Falcons.
