2015 NESTING SEASON

GCG has been tracking some of the US nests and found this neat Facebook post on the Canton Ohio peregrine site about hatching in response to the recent hatches at Rochester.

 
Photos from the RFalconCam Facebook Page / Rochester, New York
(Nominee for best newly-hatched chick photo in my humble opinion)

From the Canton Ohio Peregrine Facebook Page
At Rochester, NY, the cam can zoom in, and here we can see how the chick inside the egg has to break the eggshell all the way around the end, from the inside.  What a mighty struggle it is!! Imagine being doubled over and using your thumbnail to crack the shell, all the while slowly turning inside a cylinder, with no room to stretch,only a tiny space for your thumb to hammer away enough to hopefully break enough of the way around the end to finally push off the cap piece to be free! Gives me claustraphobia thinking about it!! Quite the amazing endeavor!!


Thanks for passing these along GCG!

2014 NESTING SEASON

Those who enjoy fireworks might want to click on “Rfalconcam” live streaming now, as they turn at least one of their cams to the fireworks at 10:00 pm, but they are 1 hr ahead of us. Sorry I just remembered now, have been busy lately.

Egg #3 for Beauty and Archer this morning!  Archer has also been seen mating with his other wife now they've confirmed!  Looks like Jack has a buddy!

...so long as they don't freeze, they can last a surprisingly long time!!

Thanks for clarifying this, TPC. :) I didn't know that.

Figures soon as I post...Beauty finally lays Egg #2!!!  Eight days later!!  :-*

Eight days later! :o Is that unusual? :-\

It is yes but it has happened before and eggs hatched ok.  Beauty and Archer have been caring for the single egg so it should be fine.

Incubation is when the eggs "get cooking", before that, so long as they don't freeze, they can last a surprisingly long time!!

Well things are certainly not working out here as hoped so far.  Beauty laid one egg on April 1st and nothing since despite a few attempts.  To top it all off, watchers suspect Archer may be two timing with a female who is in an adjacent territory.

And yes ARcher was born in Southern Ontario...I'm telling you it's something in the water  :-\

2011 NESTING SEASON

Question marks because Archer migrated as usual and a new male has been spotted bonding with Beauty the past few weeks.  

Anyway, Quest (Mariah & Kaver's daugher with the transmitter) has been photographed on a balcony railing in Kingston, Ontario!
