Stop by BAMPFA’s colossal outdoor screen on Addison Street between Shattuck and Oxford in downtown Berkeley on Thursday, April 25 to check out the livestream and meet our falcon experts! Berkeley’s most famous falcons—Annie and Grinnell—are nesting in the Campanile for the third consecutive year. If the experts’ predictions are correct, we’ll be able to watch their three eggs hatch live on the big screen.

Raptor specialists from the various partner organizations will be on hand from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. to answer questions and explain what is happening as the peregrine chicks pip (break through the egg shell) and hatch.

Peregrine falcons, the world’s fastest birds, have recovered spectacularly in North America thanks to protections from the Endangered Species Act. While only two peregrine pairs were known to nest in California, more than 400 pairs are estimated to flourish in the state today, often in urban areas. The Cal pair has nested in the Campanile bell tower since 2017, hatching two chicks that year and three in 2018. A crowd-funding initiative raised more than $14,000 to cover the cost of the cameras, which livestream video available to the public 24/7 on YouTube at UC Berkeley Campanile Peregrine Cam.
