Great River Energy hosts a peregrine falcon nesting box atop Elk River Energy Recovery Station. This is a perfect site for a nesting box because it is located in a peregrine falcon migratory flyway. The site, beside the Mississippi River, is also a draw because the birds prefer to nest in high locations near water.
During the spring and early summer months we broadcast the falcon’s activity via a Peregrine Falcon Birdcam to share the bird’s nesting season.
The birdcam is currently off as the young falcons have fledged from the nest box.
Since 2007, 30 peregrine falcons have fledged from Elk River Energy Recovery Station.
