Sometime in the early hours of Sunday, April 5th the female laid her second egg.  We expect a third egg to be laid sometime between April 7th and 8th. The male visited the female in the box and has a turn at sitting on the eggs.

Richmond
DGIF 1 week report

May 19 
May 20 falcon chick will be one week old. Biologists have documented daily feedings by both female and occasionally the male. It is unlikely any of the remaining 3 eggs hatch. Virginia DGIF biologists plan on banding the chick when it is 4 weeks of age. If the unhatched eggs are still intact they will be collected and tested.
https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/falcon-cam/2020/05/week-one-update

Early morning May 30 is a scheduled implosion of One James River Plaza office tower which is right near the falcon nest building.

Richmond Building Demolition
May 22 , 2020
Saturday, May 30th Dominion Energy plans to implode a vacant office building  one block from the peregrine falcon nest.
This implosion may temporarily startle the birds, but NOT result in the adults abandoning the nest.  The chick will be 18 days old and may be mobile and able to venture out of the nest box, but not get up onto the ledge.

Richmond Va
July 22, 2020
This pair had ONE chick that fludged and was taken to rehab.

Falcon Chick Ready for Release
July 15th, 2020
Thanks to the Wildlife Center of Virginia (WCV), the chick is flying competently and is ready for release at Shenandoah National Park.  Although she is flying well, the chick will still need to perfect her landing skills when released to establish a breeding population of peregrines in their historic mountain range in Virginia.

The chick was transported to SNP July 15th where she is being held (and fed) in a hack box for 48 hours to acclimate to her new location on a natural cliff in the mountains. Upon release she will be free to roam the landscape at will. Along with 2 young male falcons that were hacked at this site in mid-June, she will continue to be fed for a couple of weeks after release while she hones her hunting skills. Hack site attendants will monitor the falcons daily during this time.
