As promised, here are the pictures I kept. This is only one day, but I thought these were some excellent shots. I hope to get some bettter ones this year.
A second one appears.
I'm so excited. I'm hoping she'll lay at least one more before starting the incubation.
Fourth egg laid.
Two of the falcon eggs have hatched.
Good picture, if a bit dark and large, is here.
Only two of the four eggs hatched. And the babies have nearly lost all of their downy feathers.
The two unhatched eggs are gone; don't know what happened to them. I haven't been following the birds as closely this time as last year, though this time I did follow from the start and last year I came in very late.
You can also see that the nest is getting rather untidy, with remnants of the kills brought by their parents strewn about.
They've been banded, too. Pretty soon, I'd imagine they'll be testing their wings for flight.
The birds have very little of the downy feathers now. They're really starting to look more like the Peregrine falcons they will soon be.
I can't wait for them to start flapping their wings about, ready to take flight.
Birdcam 2003 is up and running.
Kaver's even sitting on the front image as I post this.
Three eggs, but not ready to lay on them to hatch yet, it seems. So here's hoping for one more!
Hatching has started on the BirdCam.
