Streaming Video Shows Iowa Falcons
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Some peregrine falcons are ready for their close-up.
The falcons are nesting outside the 10th floor window of the MidAmerican Energy building in Davenport. They can be viewed 24 hours a day through streaming online video.
MidAmerican Energy is partnering with station WQAD-TV to offer the live video of Scorpio and P/D. The four eggs in their nest are expected to hatch in early May.
The state Department of Natural Resources will band the falcons after they hatch so they can monitor their growth.
The adult falcons have raised more than a dozen young outside the building since 2003.
