Power companies install falcon webcam

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Want to get a bird's-eye view of how falcons live?

Then check out a new webcam installed by Louisville Gas & Electric and Kentucky Utilities at a power plant in southwest Louisville. The Courier-Journal reports the power company has installed a webcam to capture the daily lives of peregrine falcons that are nesting at the plant. Video from the webcab can be viewed at http://www.lge-ku.com/falcon/milestones.asp .

Kate Heyden, a bird biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, says it is the first nesting peregrine falcon webcam in the state.

Two decades ago the raptor couldn't be found in Kentucky, but it returned in 1997 and efforts have been made to help it multiply.
