Meet The River Hawks

Welcome To Hawk Watch

Welcome to the official website 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 of 2014. Her second mate, Lance, died this past year. Merri and her new mate, Chris, successfully hatched three chicks this past nesting season. They have since left the nest to hunt on their own.

Please check back in Spring 2017 when we will resume our live video feeds.
