It's not every day you can peek inside the nest of a Great Horned Owl and watch the chicks growing on an hourly basis. Oh wait, yes it is! Wisconsin's own WE Energies provides a web cam photograph of the goings on inside an owl nest and several Peregrine Falcon nests at their various power plant facilities around the southeastern Wisconsin area. This adult was captured catching a nap up close to the camera lens. The nest appears to have three young owls. Most of the time they look like a fuzzy white pile of dryer lint but they will mature quickly.This is a Peregrine Falcon at the Pleasant Prairie location.
