The UMass Amherst Libraries have announced the installation of the peregrine falcon camera atop the W. E. B. Du Bois Library. The livestream can be viewed on the Libraries’ website and YouTube channel and falcon activities are posted on the official Du Bois Falcons Twitter account.

Thanks to a collaboration among the UMass Amherst Office of the Vice Chancellor Research & Engagement; UMass Amherst Physical Plant Division; UMass Amherst Information Technology (IT), Library Technology Systems and the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife), as well as the generous donors who enabled the purchase of a new camera last year, the Libraries are able to provide this livestream for an eighth season.
