Richmond Falcon Cam

Two Eggs have Hatched

  • April 26th, 2023

As of 9:30 a.m. on 4/26 two of the eggs have hatched. The first hatch occurred just after 8:00 p.m. on 4/25 and was followed by a second hatch overnight. Newly hatched falcon chicks weigh approximately 30–40 grams (1.25 ounces) and are unable to fully thermoregulate (maintain core body temperature) for the first two weeks of life. This means the parents will continue to spend time on the nest “brooding” the chicks after they hatch and incubating the remaining eggs.

Be on the lookout for signs of hatching from the remaining two eggs!
