Finally, after not being able to get the cam since Friday I saw the little one today.  He's doing well, growing - still tiny but he looks good!  :-*

 :'( :'(  I love the young dad, he's doing a really good job considering his young age.  I hope the little one makes it.

Very sadly, today we lost one of the tiny chicks at this nest. I hope the second little one will be okay, but he still looks really small - he was born on May 28.

I am so pleased to see a hatch at this nest. The first egg was laid on April 15, so I was beginning to wonder if any of the eggs would hatch. Also, the little male is only one year old.

Haven't seen the chick yet, but there is eggshell:

Incubation of the four eggs has continued here, and the falcons looked like two adults.

Today, the little juvie was back. Seen from above, he is very dark, so I think he is the male at this nest. The eggs must be due to hatch, if they are going to hatch.



He looks unbanded to me.

 

They are definitely his eggs - he is turning them here.

The Dunn Memorial webcam was down, but just now showed a partial pic with two eggs and a male and female pair of adult peregrines. The male is banded.

I don't know where the little juvie is today.

2010 NESTING SEASON

This cam is now active, and there is one egg in the nest. Even more surprising, the falcon there is an extremely cute juvie!

 

 

Updates on this site are usually few and far between; I have no idea who this this little juvie is. I don't think I see any bands.
