MADISON (AP) - Webcams are in place to capture peregrine falcon nesting activity at two We Energies power plants in Wisconsin.
The first webcam was installed last year at the Pleasant Prairie power plant. A second camera is now in place at the Oak Creek power plant.
We Energies says the falcons have already produced eggs at both sites and they are expected to hatch in early May. The webcams will remain operative around the clock until the newly born falcons take flight and leave the nest.
The energy company says that since 1992, about 20 percent of Wisconsin's peregrine population has been hatched at We Energies facilities. It says nearly 200 falcons have been born at its power plants over that time.
