Moxie and Jamie are bringing the love back to Fort Wayne. Bird enthusiasts can watch the nesting peregrine falcons through Indiana Michigan Power's live video stream. The video feed captures the nesting box atop the Indiana Michigan Power Center building in downtown Fort Wayne.

Moxie, the mother, had four eggs in the nest Thursday afternoon, with the first one being laid March 8, according to a news release from . Moxie hatched in Canton, Ohio, in 2011. The father, Jamie, a year older, migrated to Fort Wayne from Port Sheldon, Mich. The pair has been nesting on the building since 2012 and has produced 13 chicks.

The female peregrine falcon does most of the incubating, which takes about 33 days. The male incubates the eggs while the female flies off to feed, according to the news release.

Last year the couple raised a male chick and a female chick, for a total to 49 chicks that have been hatched on I&M's roof since the nest box was set up there in 1996.
