Puget Sound Energy is proud to announce the debut of four newly-hatched Peregrine Falcons. Mom and Dad Peregrine are longtime residents of the cliff face downstream of Snoqualmie Falls.

Like any new parents, mom and dad are busy with feedings. You can see them tending to their chicks on a web cam installed this week by Puget Sound Energy. If Mom and Dad are out hunting, you can see small signs of the new chicks in their nest.

Soon, the Peregrines will be teaching their chicks how to hunt. In mid-June, the chicks are expected to fledge and leave the nest. Mom and Dad plan to remodel and travel after the children leave.

Puget Sound Energy is nearing completion of a major overhaul to its power generating facilities at Snoqualmie Falls, as well as major improvements to the Snoqualmie Falls Park.
