FYI:
New site chosen for Elk River peregrine falcons
With decommissioning of the Elk River Energy Recovery Station underway, many are wondering what will happen with the nesting peregrine falcons who have long made the plant their home.

What started as an Eagle Scout project with the Raptor Resource Project in 2006 grew to see 38 young peregrine falcons fledge from the Elk River location. The 24/7 bird cam was watched and enjoyed by people locally, nationally and even world-wide.

“It is a very popular and productive nest site,” said Brenda Geisler, administrative assistant, who has looked after the nesting box since 2007.

Geisler, along with a group of other Great River Energy employees, spent time these last few months weighing various options for how to best handle moving the nesting box location while the falcons are gone for their southern migration.

The group ultimately decided to install the nesting box on a pole located on Great River Energy’s Elk River campus—not far from the plant—which will offer a bit of familiarity for the falcons once they return, as well as the recommended height for the nest and required power available for the birdcam.

“I am grateful that this important project is moving into its next phase and am hopeful that it will continue to evolve beyond the Elk River Station demolition,” Geisler said.

Employees have started the process of removing the existing nesting box and preparation for installation of a new pole in anticipation of the peregrines’ typical nesting period in mid-February.

We will be sure to share more information regarding the birdcam as it becomes available.

Thanks to you all for being such loyal followers!

Great River Energy

Well, not too big a hurry as long as we know they'll be back. Of course, we don't know that they'll use the box the first year (think positive). We've got a few months before the birds are even back yet.

Super excited.... over the past week and a half, Brooklyn and Breezy have been seen in the nest box (a new location & type) both together and alone. Fingers crossed they'll accept their new high rise apartment & raise a family this year. We are working hard to figure out a new & reliable method to stream from the new location as our previous method went the way of the dinosaurs.

I worry about this box as no protection at all. Not how a box is usually placed.

I am very surprised that they have accepted the new nest box. Assume to get the camera operational, they won't have to actually have work at the nest? :nervous:

My thoughts exactly, ljames. Maybe installed they installed the cam earlier, and what they need to do now involves hooking up the computer!

With the nest box moving and new cameras etc we have to get a new streaming system in place. Hopefully soon.
