Richmond Falcon Cam

Countdown Begins

  • April 25th, 2011

Peregrine falcon eggs typically hatch after 33-35 days of incubation.  The birds usually begin incubating after the female lays the second to last (penultimate) egg.  This year incubation was a bit of a start and stop affair that began with the second egg laid. 

What does this mean for this clutch? Only time will tell but today, April 25th, marks 33 days since the second egg was laid.  We’ll keep a sharp eye on the nest in the coming days as we wait for signs of the first hole or pip that will tell us hatching has begun.
