“We have one eagle nest equipped with two video cameras so you can watch the American bald eagles build their nest, lay and incubate their eggs, and raise their young in late January through July,” the Xcel website states.
The nest is 6 feet-wide and 5 feet-deep and has been active for many years, according to Xcel. It sits high in a cottonwood tree near the plant.MORE NEWS: Colorado Snow Totals: Boulder County Gets More Than A Foot
