There’s a new addition to one of Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) and We Energies’ peregrine falcon nest boxes. The first egg of the nesting season has been laid at Valley Power Plant in Milwaukee.

Proud parents Rolo and an unbanded female are watching over their new arrival. This is their second year nesting together.

Now’s the perfect time to tune into the live nest box cameras. More eggs should be laid over the new few days.

The parents will take turns incubating their egg(s) over the coming weeks. If all goes well, we should see the first chicks in a little over a month.

Look for all of the egg-citing updates on X and Facebook.

Peregrine falcon program

WPS and We Energies began installing peregrine falcon nest boxes on power plants in the early 90’s. So far, 444 peregrine falcons have hatched at WPS and We Energies facilities — that’s 20% of all peregrine falcons born in Wisconsin.

This program is another way WPS and We Energies are building a bright, sustainable future. From helping endangered animals and restoring natural habitats, to building new solar facilities and reducing carbon emissions, we are committed to a cleaner future.
