Meet The River Hawks

Meet The River Hawks

Welcome to Hawk Watch

You are watching live video of the university’s resident peregrine falcons - our honorary River Hawks - as they mate, hatch and raise their chicks on top of Fox Hall. The female falcon, Merri, was able to find a new mate after her previous one, Mack, died unexpectedly in June last year.

Please Remember

During the nesting period, as the baby falcons mature and eventually leave the nest, please do not call the UMass Lowell Police Department or other emergency services.

If you don’t see the falcons or are concerned for other reasons, do not fret. A dedicated group of staff and volunteers are monitoring the falcons, eggs and eventually the chicks around the clock. They will alert the appropriate authorities when necessary.

We will continue to post updates here as well as on Facebook and Twitter if something noteworthy happens.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to webcontent@uml.edu. Again, please do not call the UMass Lowell Police Department or other emergency services.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Special Thanks

A special thank you to Mercier Electric & Communications, Inc. for sponsoring and installing the nest camera.
