Viewers can watch as the peregrines raise their young in the nest. The nest is in a large planter with small bushes. Peregrines, which dive on pigeons, ducks and other prey as speeds more than 200 mph, have been nesting in balcony planters at SunTrust Plaza since 1997. These raptors normally have their nests on remote cliffs.

Take a peek at the nest.
