ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Despite all the rain, five peregrine falcon chicks have hatched in a nesting box high above Ameren Missouri’s Sioux Energy Center.

The eggs were first noticed March 14.

The female and male falcons traded off incubation duty until the hatching.

Ameren Missouri, the World Sanctuary, and the Missouri Department of Conservation are celebrating the sixth season of hosting a live camera feed of the nesting box.
