During the 2020 nesting season, Peregrine Falcons nested on the Mid-Hudson Bridge and on the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. 

The chicks were named through a naming contest, which will be hosted again next year.

Below is a video of Chris Nadareski of the NYC Department of Environmental Protection banding the peregrine chicks on the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge earlier this year. Below this video is the link to the Mid-Hudson Bridge webcam, which is usually live from March through July, because this is when the peregrines usually nest.
