WISCONSIN — We Energies and the Wisconsin Public Service's peregrine falcons have welcomed over a dozen eggs just in time for Easter.

The falcons have laid eggs at several the year's nest boxes at the Oak Creek Power Plant, Valley Power Plant, Port Washington Generating Station and Weston Power Plant. There have been 15 eggs laid in total.

The peregrine falcon program was established in the mid-1990s. 402 peregrine falcons have been born at the facilities.

Here is a list from We Energies of the falcons:

Oak Creek Power Plant
Essity and Michael are incubating four eggs. They’re expected to hatch between May 3 and 5.

Valley Power Plant
Hercules and his mate, an unbanded female, are incubating three eggs. They’re expected to hatch between May 6 and 11.

Port Washington Generating Station
Beasley and Brinn are incubating four eggs. Brinn laid five, but unfortunately, one broke. The remaining eggs are expected to hatch between April 28 and May 4.

Weston Power Plant
Rosalee and Sheldon are incubating four eggs at the WPS nest box in Rothschild. They’re expected to hatch between May 3 and 5.
