In recent days, Barb has spent more time in the nest. Boh too, has been at her beck and call. Egg watch perhaps? When she is alone, she kaks until he shows up and joins her in the nest. I would guess since it is 2021, she wants him in the "delivery" room.  ::)

The 3 chicks are often seen with Barb or Boh II nearby. They will soon be able to "scoot"  around at this site. Looking forward to our local cam as well.

One egg remains in place, but is no longer viable. The 3 chicks are growing in leaps and bounds. Unable to cover the chicks, Barb has now become their "Mumbrella!"  ;D

Only a quick glance of a change of command allowed me to see that there has been a hatch at this nest. I was unable to see a chick because either Boh II or Barb hunkered down and blocked my view. Maybe a better view later.  ::)
Update
My post on Friday (April 10th) was premature. There are now 3 chicks at this site. All 3 hatched yesterday in the early hours as confirmed by the Chesapeake Conservancy. As Barb struggles to cover the chicks, I have seen the 4th egg.  ;D

Barb is consistent. She laid her 4th egg today. I'm hoping this year all eggs hatch and fledge successfully. Congratulations Barb and BohII.

A 3rd egg was laid this morning. Hopefully there will be a 4th and the countdown will begin.  ;D

TPC, this is a partial 2019 recap about Boh 2...

2019 Recap
"The eventful season officially began when Barb laid her first egg on the morning of March 20, followed by the second on March 22, the third on March 24 (or 25), and the fourth on March 27.
Around April 18, one of the eggs was removed from the cluster, likely as Barb may have known that it was non-viable.
In late April, Boh disappeared from the nest for unknown reasons, and a new male peregrine falcon began to court Barb and bring her prey. Cam viewers called this male peregrine, “Nubo.” We do not know what happened to original Boh, but for purposes of promotion of this cam, the Peregrine Falcon couple is still called “Barb & Boh.”
The first egg hatched on April 28, and the second egg hatched April 29. Unfortunately, the third egg was also non-viable."


Thus far, there are 2 eggs. The egg in the shade is the egg that Barb removed from the cluster last year. On average, she lays 4 eggs a year. So we have Barb and BohII (2nd)  ;D

A pair was sighted this morning bowing/bonding before one left. The other walked around the nest "searching" for a site to start a scrape.  ;D I love this site. Barb has been the resident female for many years. Boh had been the resident male before a young male took over the nest last year. The administration named him Boh. They were unsuccessful in nesting. Maybe this year will prove fruitful.  ???

So there was "old Boh" and now there is "new Boh"? Or did I read it wrong?
Let me know and I can update the thread subject.
