LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A peregrine falcon nesting pair has company from the Internet while waiting for their five eggs to hatch in Louisville.

The eggs are inside the nest box at Louisville Gas and Electric Co.’s Mill Creek Generating Station. In 2013, LG&E; and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources installed the state’s first peregrine falcon webcam.

The webcam has drawn nearly 200,000 viewers during the last three seasons, including more than 12,000 already this season.

The nest box is in the window of a concrete power plant stack about 300 feet above the ground. LG&E; says power plant crevices and alcoves remind the falcons of natural nesting locations, such as mountain cliffs and ledges.
