First Peregrine Hatches of 2016!

We have our first known peregrine hatches of the year! Dairyland Power Genoa began hatch on April 28th, with three eyass falcons hatching on the same day, and Great River Energy Elk River had its first hatch just this morning. Our hatch estimates for this week are:

  • Xcel Sherco: May 3rd
  • Great Spirit Bluff: May 3rd
  • Xcel Allen S. King: May 6th

Remember, these are only estimates. Hatch may occur slightly sooner or later in any given place. Congratulations to our peregrine parents…I think this could be a record year if the weather continues to hold!
