WildStreaming.com is a project of RichmondOutside.com, an outdoor recreation website based in Richmond, Va. In the late winter of 2017, I and fellow RichmondOutside owner Ryan Abrahamsen launched our first wildlife cam — the RVA Osprey Cam — showcasing an osprey nest in downtown Richmond. Set on a bridge piling in the
shadow of the city’s skyline and hemmed by James River Park land, the RVA Osprey Cam was a huge hit in the city and beyond. So, when the Center for Conservation Biology asked us if we’d like to revive their dormant peregrine falcon cam in Newport News, we jumped at the opportunity. The nest overlooking the James River is one of fewer than 30 peregrine falcon nest sites in all of Virginia.
We’re really excited to share these incredible birds — peregrine falcons are the fastest birds in the world, flying well over 200 mph — with the residents of Newport News, and falcon fans all over the world, in crystal clear 1080p resolution. We’ve also added a chat feature to allow birdwatchers to contribute to the conversation about these gorgeous raptors.
