PG&E’s beloved San Francisco Falcon cam to go dark after 15 years

PG&E is pulling the plug on its popular falcon cam after 15 years

One of wildest reality shows is coming to an end.

After more than 15 years, PG&E will shut off its popular falcon cam.

It sits atop the utility’s former headquarters at 77 Beale Street in San Francisco. PG&E recently sold the building, and the camera will be turned off on October 15. PG&E gave notice on Saturday of the camera going dark.

The utility company says the nesting super-site has witnessed nearly 50 peregrine births to eight separate pairs of falcon parents since the 1980s.

Viewership reached 500,000 in one week alone in April, with people from around the world watching each breeding season to see the families grow.
