Anacapa
March 16, 2021  MYSTERY

Why no 2nd egg?  Male very dedicated to his egg!
This pair lays late March.  Did another female lay his egg there?

Rysx posted March 15
A possible nest takeover was mentioned earlier. I saw several situations with nest takeovers and the “old” egg was typically not destroyed by the “new” nest occupants. But there could be still another scenario: Initially, when our Mr. A arrived, another female appeared, Mr. A mated with her and she laid her egg. Then his regular partner showed up, chased away the usurper.
   She would not be interested in this egg, while he would. It will become more probable if this female lays eggs at about her “regular” time.

I just went back and took 3 images from Explore gallery of the female that laid the egg.
The egg was laid March 8, 2021 - but by who?

  The egg was laid March 8th, about 2 weeks too early for this pair. Peregrines lay up to 5 eggs, at a 3-4 days interval.

So far, only HopperJet, the male, has been incubating the lonely egg. Lena, the female, keeps running him off. Today, she kicks the egg out of the bowl while making impression in the egg cup. HopperJet arrives later and tucks it back in.

I'm leaning toward the theory that this egg was laid by another female (a passerby?). The current resident female may or may not lay more eggs later. Since the birds are not banded, there is no way to know who, when, what and with whom. Stay tuned!

Anacapa MYSTERY SOLVED
March 26, 2021
Cali Condor - Explore - went back thru her photos to compare.
Conclusion - its LIKELY the egg was laid by a young passing female.
This current female may be a 2 year old.
What will become of Solo if this female doesnt lay unknown.
