Who knew a power plant could provide so much entertainment for a worldwide audience?
A pair of owls nesting in a smokestack at Xcel Energy's Valmont Plant in Boulder, Colorado is drawing worldwide attention.
Computer users from across the globe are keeping a close eye on the owls via a webcam mounted in the smokestack tower.
"We get e-mails from people wanting to know what's going on, they're concerned about the health and the well being of the owls," says Xcel's Dave Madonna.
Xcel put in the box a few years ago and it didn't take long for the owls to settle in, only they didn't know a camera would follow.
