Falcon cam goes live

Our peregrine falcons are ready for the cameras. We recently launched our popular falcon cams, giving you a live look inside more nesting sites than ever before.

Right now, the falcons nesting at our Oak Creek power plant can be seen via live streaming video. Depending on nesting activity, the video will change to one of three other sites: Pleasant Prairie, Wauwatosa and Port Washington. Hourly still photos also are available from all of our power plant nest boxes.

Eggs are present at all six of our sites, and hatching should begin this week in both Oak Creek and Milwaukee (Valley Power Plant). If all goes as expected, our peregrine falcon recovery program will reach a major milestone this year – more than 200 peregrines produced at We Energies facilities.

You can follow the action online from birth to first flight. Aside from the webcams, updates will be posted via Twitter @we_energies. You also can subscribe to our raptor blog and have updates sent right to your inbox.
