Richmond Falcon Cam

Richmond Falcon Fledge Date Set

  • June 7th, 2011

The falcon chick in downtown Richmond will be released from its pen on June 16th.  A remote trigger will be attached to the pen door in the morning.  This trigger uses melting ice to release the door with no humans close by to affect the behavior of the birds.

VDWR staff along with volunteers will be located at strategic points in downtown Richmond to monitor the bird’s progress and intervene if necessary.
