An interesting story.
The Minnesota Power Boswell Energy Station is the largest electrical generator in Northeastern Minnesota. (The power plant is just outside of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, about 90 miles southwest of Lake Vermilion.)
Peregrine Falcons have been nesting on the plants’ emission stacks for about 10 years. Yes, Bandit and Windsong are busy tending to family chores 220 feet up in the air. And now a total of 31 new Peregrine chicks can call this place home. The folks at Minnesota Power put a camera near the nest.
Log into the FalconCam and see for yourself.
