- Final Tally - Four Eggs April 23, 2013 Joel.Jorgensen
Wow! It took a healthy dose of patience and persistence to finally ascertain a good look at the clutch and determine that it is complete at 4 eggs. The birds seem to have been on the eggs without a break, no doubt this is partially due to the cold weather and the need to keep the eggs from getting cold. So there you have it, if everything goes as expected, we should see hatching occur in mid-May.
- Don’t forget the Kestrels April 18, 2013 Joel.Jorgensen
Remember our “other” webcam that is placed on top of and provides an intimate view inside an American Kestrel nestbox located on on the north side of the NGPC headquarters building. These little falcons have also been active and also have four eggs (it is my understanding the Peregrines now have 4 eggs, but I have yet to catch a glimpse). The link to this webcam is below:
- Egg #3 April 14, 2013 Joel.Jorgensen
Early Sunday morning the birds gave me a brief glimpse of the clutch and, as expected, there were three eggs. If anymore are on the way, expect it to arrive on Monday or Tuesday. Maybe by the time the female is done laying eggs spring will arrive? Maybe? Please!
- Two eggs for a wintry day April 11, 2013 Joel.Jorgensen
As some have already seen, the female laid a second egg midday on this cold and snowy April 11th. After the female laid the egg, the male tended to the clutch-in-progress. He was not providing much in the way of good views of the eggs. The second eggs came as expected, about two days after the first one was laid. If another egg is on tap, expect to see it sometime Saturday (but don’t hold me to it!).
