Falcons

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. Once we are alterted that a female falcon is present, a link to the camera will be sent to each 1201 Third Tenant Contact, our social media platforms, and on the tenant website.
