Georgia has fallen in love with live nest cameras this spring.
Make some live-streaming room for the peregrine falcons nesting on a SunTrust Plaza balcony, 50 stories above Atlanta, with interstate traffic seen in the distance.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says the falcons have been nesting in a large planter on the balcony and its eyas — or young — hatched a couple of weeks ago. Live-streaming began soon afterward.
The DNR said the camera is usually up from March through May. “This year, however, the falcons switched their nesting sites twice, causing delays in setting up the camera,” the agency said in a press release.
