2021 Xcel Energy Sherco Falcons
« on: January 04, 2021, 09:59:53 AM »

The Xcel Energy Sherco falcons are nesting on a catwalk on the 400 foot level of Xcel Energy's Sherco plant in Becker, Minnesota, next to the Mississippi 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/.

2020 Nesting Record
2/3/2020: An unknown falcon was spotted today. It appears to be unbanded.
The unknown falcon here laid her first egg last year on April 30. She may lay earlier this year: last year was her first year onsite and she came to it late.

Amy, thank you for your work!   :)
