Welcome back!

Welcome back to the 2022 falcon cam season! We are excited to kick off a new season with our viewers. Viewers should see Diana soon and expect to see their first glimpse of eggs starting in March, with chicks hatching mid-April or early May. We will be sharing frequent milestones as the season unfolds.

Since 1999, 172 chicks have been banded by KDFWR at LG&E and KU generating stations.  In 2021, there were three successful nests at LG&E and KU facilities. Two of these pairs used a nest box. The third pair nested on a beam, under a coal conveyer. Peregrines were briefly visited at a fourth LG&E and KU site, but there was no nesting. Also in 2021, LG&E and KU nests produced eight eggs and seven chicks. All of the chicks fledged successfully.

Say hello to our new roommates at our E.W. Brown solar facility! A flock of Shetland and Katahdin sheep from nearby Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill are hard at work keeping the vegetation in check at Kentucky’s largest universal solar facility, located in Mercer County.
