First falcon egg hatches on Indiana Michigan Power’s FalconCam
FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The first falcon egg has hatched in the nest on top of Indiana Michigan Power Center in Fort Wayne.
The first peregrine falcon chick was seen on Friday afternoon, and three other eggs could hatch any day.
Each year, I&M, in partnership with Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehabilitation and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, name and band each falcon chick once they reach an appropriate age.
Since 1996, over 60 chicks have hatched in a nesting box on top of the Power Center, which is a site for falcon restoration. The building gives these falcons a high vantage point with few natural predators and access to food and water.
