In the wild, falcons nest on high cliffs. In urban settings, tall buildings make a suitable alternative. PPL’s 322-foot headquarters in Pennsylvania and the crevices and alcoves at our power plants in Kentucky remind the falcons of natural nesting locations, such as mountain cliffs and ledges.

A pair of peregrine falcons is nesting on the top of PPL’s iconic 23-story headquarters in downtown Allentown. A duo set up house in the nesting box atop our building in the hopes of hatching young peregrines.
In partnership with Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, LG&E and KU launched in 2013 Kentucky’s first live peregrine falcon web cam inside the falcon nest box at our Mill Creek Generating Station. Since then, more than 100 falcons have hatched from these nest boxes.
