2018 Peregrine Watch Updates

4/12/18

Based on the behaviors that our Peregrine Watch volunteers have observed, it looks like both the Trapps and Bonticou Peregrines are now incubating eggs. The Millbrook pair is being more elusive, but we know they have established their nest site for this year and we do think they have started laying eggs.
 
Peregrine falcons typically lay anywhere from 1-4 eggs (or even 5 in very rare circumstances), but there is about a day between each egg laid. It can often take a week or so from the onset of laying to the beginning of incubation.
We'll be posting regular updates from our volunteers on this page and on Facebook, but in the meantime, enjoy images from this fantastic webcam hosted by the Peregrine Fund in Boise, ID (pictured right).
