    Kate, have noticed that the webcam from the Cathedral is not live any longer. Is this the time they discontinue showing the live pictures?

    I love it! I slowly scrolled down, wondering what I would see, and there was our peregrine, from a view up top. What a neat photo.

    >the webcam from the Cathedral is not live any longer
    The streaming cam is no longer live because Pitt had to change the cam’s address within their network. Earthcam (the streaming service) cannot see the new cam address yet. Fixing this is moot because the young aren’t visiting the nest any more and the streaming contract with Earthcam is over for this year – or nearly over.

    The non-streaming version is live. It’s the link called “refreshes every 15 seconds” on the streaming page or at: http://www.aviary.org/cons/falconcam2.php

    Does this occur with the Gulf Tower camera also or will it remain streaming?

    >Will the Gulf Tower camera remain streaming?
    No. It is removed from the roof every year and stored until the next nesting season.

    Thank you for the photo. I thought about the Peregrines the other night during the storms and hoped they were safe. Kate, what do they do to stay safe in such weather?

    They find a safe nook on a building that is out of the weather.
