Watch Nature Unfold on Xcel Energy's Bird Cams | Environment
It’s officially bird cam watching season. Just this week cameras captured the first peregrine falcon eggs at Xcel Energy’s power plant nest boxes. The nests with soon-to-be mothers are located at the King plant in Oak Park Heights, and the Sherburne County plant near Becker.
Xcel says, from now through mid-summer, you can watch the falcons going about their daily lives on streaming video. Additionally, still images are posted from a falcon nest at the Black Dog plant in Burnsville and an osprey nest at the King plant.
Check out all the bird cams here.
