All the news from Harrisburg so far this season ~~~

3/10/2014 :: First Egg Expected Soon!
We can expect the first egg to be laid sometime this week. The best estimate, based on last year's timeline, would be Wednesday or Thursday. The female has the scrape meticulously prepared for the event. She rotates her body in the scrape to make a well-rounded depression in the gravel base. The first and second egg should get only occasional incubation time. When the third egg arrives incubation time should increase. The full clutch will be warmed continuously until hatching begins.

3/13/2014 :: First Egg!
At around 5 p.m. yesterday, the female laid the first egg in the scrape! The first and second egg should get occasional incubation time. When the third egg arrives, the incubation time should increase. The full clutch will be warmed continuously until hatching begins

3/18/2014 :: Three Eggs!
The female laid the second egg on Saturday, March 15th and the third on Monday, March 17th

3/19/2014 :: Four Eggs!
The female laid the fourth egg around 9:30 a.m. This may or may not be the full clutch...within several days we'll know for sure. The female will do most of the incubation, and the male will increase his hunting efforts to provide food for both of them

4/8/2014 :: Update From the Nest Box
We can expect the first egg to hatch around the 20th of April. This female has been consistent within her reproductive cycle. The male has been hunting regularly and taking some of the incubation duties.

Here are the reports that I received from the PA DEP --

4/17/2014 :: First Hatch Soon
Based on the timing from the nesting season last year, we should expect the first hatch within a day or two. The female will move off the eggs occasionally for the male to take some incubation duties and to rotate the eggs. As this activity is happening we may see signs of pipping, or breaking out of the shell by a hatchling


4/21/2014 :: Three Nestlings!
Yesterday, 4/20, three of the four eggs hatched!

For the last egg, look for white spots on it, which is an indication that the last hatchling will arrive very soon. The close camera views are provided to get the best coverage of this fascinating point in a Peregrine Falcon's reproductive cycle

4/22/2014 :: Fourth Egg Hatches!
Sometime overnight or early this morning, the last of the falcon eggs hatched out, bringing the brood to four!
