March 17
Bo and Barb are incubating their 4 eggs.
Next month a lovely new falcon family.
Bo has both egg duty and guard duty.
There seems to be flights overhead he wards off
What a great Daddy!

Trouble in paradise

Apr 11, Barb kakking, left the eggs to help Boh - intruder. At the 32-second mark, Barb is almost out of cam view just above the height of the ledge at the left side, when 2 birds seen in the upper left corner. FIGHT?

When Boh arrived I still cant tell how many are there!
At leasts 2 I think

One is already exploring! Its just hilarious!

First babies are always so eggciting!   :D

Apr 16 dawn
 Last nite I watched a feeding, and wee Wobbles got none.
This morning all 3 got a bite.  Wild Child got the most.

There were 4 eggs laid and 3 have hatched. Is/was the 4th egg viable?

2 of Barbs eggs didnt hatch last year
You can still see one of them at the far end of the nest
If egg 4 doesnt hatch tomorrow - its likely not going to

Thanks for your response. If that should happen, we can only hope the others thrive to fledge and migrate in the fall.  ;D
