Bird Cam

This picture of two bald eagle chicks was taken this afternoon in a nest near the Fort St. Vrain Power Plant in Platteville, Colorado. Xcel Energy, for impact mitigation and public outreach purposes, has positioned cameras on raptor nests located near several of their power plants. Their Bird Cam can be accessed here.

Raptor enthusiasts can see views of bald eagle, osprey, kestrel, peregrine, and great horned owl nests.

Our friend Bob Anderson is responsible for the cams but more so he is responsible for the return of the peregrines to the cliffs of the upper mississippi river,,take a look at raptor resource dot org for a wonderful insight.
