Here's the latest news from Harrisburg that came in my email this morning.


4/26/2011 :: Hatch Update
The remaining eggs in the scrape have had little incubation so it's likely we'll have only one nestling this season. We think this new female is very young and as such it's not unusual for her to lay infertile eggs. This may actually be good in the sense that she'll have less pressure in giving flight and hunting lessons to this nestling when it fledges than if the full clutch had hatched. Looking back to the 2000 season, mortality of the fledglings was high (75%) perhaps due to the inexperience of 4/4, the original Rachel Carson female in training the fledges to attain the skills necessary to reach independence.

I watched a feeding of the little falcon tonight at about 7PM EDT. This is a new, young Mom this year on this nest and I have to say that she was a little awkward and very noisy. She was also eating while she was feeding the baby.

Here is the new Mom...she is a very good sized falcon with a very long tail. Dad was on the nest when I first brought the cam up and it was very easy to see who was who from their sizes when Mom flew in with dinner.
