FALCON CAM

Nature’s finest flying machine

Peregrine Falcon Cam
This nesting box was placed 213 ft. in the air on the top of our elevator in 1990. The nest box was built through collaboration between Continental Grain and the Raptor Resource Project. The nest box provides a safe haven for the once nearly extinct peregrine falcons. Husker, the female that first arrived in 2000 from Nebraska, has came back every year since and laid her eggs at this site. The internet video camera was put in the nest box in 2007 to give Red Wing Grain employees and the community the ability to watch the peregrines nurture their eggs, which usually hatch in early- to mid-May.
