Three osprey chicks, the newest residents of the only known osprey nest in eastern Nebraska, are growing quickly.
The female osprey at Fort Calhoun Station laid three eggs, and if all goes well, the chicks should hatch in late May or early June.
Two ospreys are making themselves at home in a relocated nest. Their refurbished digs include a webcam, so you can watch the rare raptors.
One of the biggest current projects at Fort Calhoun Station is removing the internal components from the reactor vessel, the parts that helped the reactor produce nuclear power.
An osprey nest at Fort Calhoun Station will be fitted with a webcam much like the utility’s peregrine falcon cam.
With the final canister secured in recent days, all spent nuclear fuel is safely in dry storage.
