BirdCam began in 1998, when
NSP (now Xcel Energy) became one of the first companies to
place images from a peregrine nest box online. The original
BirdCam allowed visitors to watch Mae, the first falcon to
nest at a power plant, care for and feed her young.
BirdCam has since expanded to
several power plants and two other raptor species: eagles
and owls. Visitors can watch the feed and access and download
pictures at each site. The Raptor Resource Project will post
estimated hatch dates and other information at this site.
Visit our Nest
Viewer to view
falcons, eagles, and osprey online. Would
