First falcon chick arrives in Pleasant Prairie

Early Tuesday morning, a crack could be seen in one of four peregrine falcon eggs at our Pleasant Prairie Power Plant.

By early afternoon, a chick had broken through the shell and could be seen on our live webcam.

The remaining three eggs at the Pleasant Prairie site should be hatching soon. Five other power plant sites are expected to follow suit. Eggs are present at nest boxes in Oak Creek, Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Port Washington and Marquette, Michigan.
