Owl cam is up again

Great horned owls nest very early in the spring and Xcel Energy has placed web cams in nest boxes at its Valmont Power Station in Boulder. When the great horned owls finish their nesting activities this spring, the camera will switch to barn owls that are just beginning to nest. Because these birds are most active at night, we use an infrared camera which captures images under low-light conditions and provides them in black and white.
