The Union County Falcon Cam is one of only two in New Jersey. Union County participates in a banding program with wildlife experts from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

Both parents incubate the eggs and switch several times a day.
With this pair, the female appears to have a brighter, whiter head than the male.
Incubation occurs only after all of the eggs have been laid and lasts 32 to 33 days.
The female usually performs most of the incubation responsibilities with the male occasionally participating.
Females are about 1/3 larger than the males - the females have especially larger feet and beaks.
After hatching, the young are totally dependent upon their parents (altricial) until they are ready to fly in approximately seven weeks.
Upon leaving the nest (fledging), the young remain dependent on the adults until they master their flight and hunting skills.
