Watching Falcon Nests At Minnesota Power Facilities

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Thanks to strategically placed webcams, bird lovers around the world can watch as peregrine falcons prepare for a chick hatch at Minnesota Power facilities in Cohasset and Duluth.  Four eggs have been spotted in the nesting box at the Boswell plant in Cohasset and the Hibbard Renewable Energy Center in Duluth has falcons caring for at least two eggs.  The nesting boxes are managed in partnership with the Raptor Resource Project in Iowa who bands the chicks and tracks the birds.  59 peregrine falcons have hatched at Boswell since 1993 and 10 chicks have hatched at Hibbard since 2008.  The falcon cams can be found at mnpower.com
