Peregrine falcon nest boxes have been installed on the International Bridge  since 2010 on both the U.S. and Canadian arches. Peregrines have been active at the International Bridge since 1999. The nest boxes are an ongoing commitment by the IBA to provide our falcons a habitat, as they like to nest on tall buildings, smokestacks and bridges. The peregrine falcon is listed as an endangered species in Michigan, protected by state law.

While they may still fine-tune the vantage point and the zoom factor, the IBA now has the live video stream viewable at http://www.saultbridge.com/falcam.
