Bald eagle egg hatches at Colorado power station
DENVER – Xcel Energy says one of two bald eagle eggs laid at a nest at its Fort St. Vrain Generating Station near Platteville has hatched.
The utility said Friday that the second egg is due to hatch any time.
Xcel has posted a live feed on its Web site from two cameras mounted on a tree limb about six feet above the nest.
The utility also has cameras above a nest box visited by a pair of great horned owls at its Valmont Generating Station in Boulder and a nest visited by a kestrel at its Pawnee Generating Station in Brush.
