Bald eagle eggs hatch at Xcel Energy station

According to Xcel Energy, there are two hatchlings in the Bald Eagle nest at their Fort St. Vrain Station in Platteville, Colorado.

According to Xcel’s website, the pair “have a 6-foot-wide by 5-foot-deep nest that sits high in a cottonwood tree near the plant. Eagles return to the nest in the fall and conduct nesting activities from about February to June. The nest has been active for years, with the Colorado Division of Wildlife banding young birds at the nest site each spring.”

Xcel has live feeds on its Web site from two cameras mounted on a tree limb about six feet above the nest.
