Peregrine Falcon Cam

Black Dog web site and cam link..

Plant Description: Black Dog is a coal- and gas-fired generating station, located on the Minnesota River just south of the Twin Cities.

About Falcon Cam: Three Locations in Minnesota
Our Falcon Cam features three different nest sites at Xcel Energy power plants in Minnesota. Xcel Energy’s involvement with bird cams began with the Falcon Cam in 1997, when the first camera came online to help raise awareness for our partnership with the Raptor Resource Project (RRP) and peregrine falcon conservation efforts. It was installed at our Allen S. King Plant, in Oak Park Heights, Minnesota.
Peregrine falcons find the boxes installed on power plant stacks attractive as nesting sites because they offer some of the same features as the high cliffs, which they naturally prefer. Installed 300 to 600 feet above the ground, the boxes provide a perch where peregrines have an excellent view of the skies around them and can quickly spot and “skydive” for prey. The boxes were first installed at our Minnesota power plants beginning in 1989 to help return peregrines to the Mississippi River Valley.
