A pair of peregrine falcons that have been nesting atop the Indiana Michigan Power Center since 2012 are now parents to several newly hatched chicks.
A live feed of the nesting box has been made available thanks to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Soarin’ Hawk Avian Rescue and Indiana Michigan Power.
Moxie, the falcon mother, migrated to Fort Wayne from Canton, Ohio and the father, Jamie, migrated to Fort Wayne from Port Sheldon, Michigan.
There are three chicks visible on the live feed you can access below and once the birds reach an appropriate age, I&M will work with the DNR to name and band each falcon.
The DNR and volunteers from Soarin’ Hawk Avian Rescue and the Indiana Audubon Society
are monitoring the birds and will provide medical care, nest cleanup and tracking according to a news release issued by I&M.
