The New York State Thruway Authority maintains a 24-hour webcam on the Tappan Zee Bridge to monitor a nest of endangered peregrine falcons. The Authority also manages several traffic cameras around the Tappan Zee Bridge, but these cameras provide a sequence of still photos rather than a live stream.
The Tappan Zee peregrine falcon camera is located on top of the bridge and only provides a view of the nest box and not bridge traffic. This camera streams live around the clock.
The New York State Thurway Authority has three cameras around the Tappan Zee: two on the bridge itself and one by the toll on the bridge's north bank. These cameras do not stream automatically. Instead, users can view the most recent images by clicking on the photo to refresh it.
