2021 Xcel Energy King Plant Falcons
« on: January 04, 2021, 09:58:40 AM »

The Xcel Allen S. King falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 400 foot level of Xcel Energy's Allen S. King plant in Oak Park Heights, Minnesota, next to the Saint Croix River. Feel free to talk about them! We especially appreciate band IDs (band colors are fine if that is all you can get), egg laying times and dates, hatch times and dates, prey observations, and screen caps. If the cam is available, you can watch the falcons on this page: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/xcel-energy-cams/.

I really missed them last year!

2020 Nesting Record
Last year's female was Kris 69/W, a 2011 hatch from the MN Power Clay Boswell station in Cohasset, MN.
Last year's male was Slate 08/C, a 2012 hatch from the Colonnade Building in Golden Valley, MN.

Thanks to our sharp-eyed forum members and Xcel camera operators for the band information!
Kris laid her first egg last year on April 25.

A falcon was spotted here in early February.

Amy, thank you for your work!   :)
