Xcel Energy Eagle Cams

Background

We have one eagle nest equipped with two video cameras so you can watch the American bald eagles build their nest, lay and incubate their eggs, and raise their young in late January through July.

Eagle Cams One and Two are located at the Fort St. Vrain Station Platteville, Colo. This 6 foot-wide and 5 foot-deep nest has been active for many years.

Another eagle cam supported by the Raptor Resource Project is near a fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa, and is very popular among local schools and other viewers. You can also view a live video stream on YouTube.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter to get the most recent updates about these eagle families and their nesting activities.

About

This pair of bald eagles lives at our Fort St. Vrain Station in Platteville, Colorado. Their 6-foot-wide by 5-foot-deep nest sits high in a cottonwood tree near the plant. Eagles return to the nest in the fall and conduct nesting activities from about January to July. The nest has been active for years, and went online in 2003. Learn more about the history of this nest, including nest record information.
