Falcon family moves into uptown high rise

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A rare sighting in uptown Charlotte has earned it a 24/7 live camera.

A pair of peregrine falcons and two hatchlings occupy a space just outside the window of executive suite at One Wells Fargo Center.

Both babies were born in the past 48 hours.

The building's manager, Childress Klein Properties and a video team from Wells Fargo setup the live shot.

Peregrine falcons were almost extinct in the U.S. at one time before making a comeback in urban areas thanks to skyscrapers and the lack of predators.
