  • With the return of spring, visitors to Dairyland Power Cooperative's website visitors have a rare opportunity to observe a nesting pair of Peregrine falcons through our new "Bird-Cam." Early this spring, thanks to the efforts of Dairyland employees, management, and the Raptor Resource Project, a remote TV camera was installed and focused on the Peregrine nest box located 450 feet up the smoke stack at the Alma Generating Station. In 1997, this nest box became home to the first wild pair of Peregrines (Wisconsin endangered species) to successfully hatch chicks in Western Wisconsin in over 25 years.
