Sadly, yes, Peep.

This one was the first one to hatch and seems to be doing ok so far.

Newman never helped feed the chicks and the female didnt feed them properly either so 2 starved to death.  So far #3 is surviving ..... practice years are tough

Love TRUTH even if you dont like it

A little after 10 she took a bird in and told Newman to leave.  I couldn't see how she was feeding the little one with her back to the cam and couldn't get a good look at the crop on it after.

If this chick survives, she learned to do it right.  :)

bev over on bcaw has watched this VERY closely.
She says this surviving chick is #3 hatch.
She knows falcons like few others.
She loves this female

aww Lisa, how cute!  Hi guys, I have been watching anxiously & seeing the events happen. 
Thank you Lisa, Shep, Nora, Raleigh, Peep and ALL for posting updates, news & pics.  Oh yea, those barge reports are very important too! ;)  I have been taking some cute pics but never posted them because I didn't know how this was going to play out. I think "she" will be ok, Great job Zooey & Newman!!!

I agree... It's funny, he comes to relieve her sometimes and she's like "Not yet, why don't you go hunting or something"? ;) I am very proud of her! :)

Lori, it's like watching with baited breath at times, but as Nora said, she is coming into her own! 

You should post your pics.  I am sure they are wonderful!

Off to ride the lawnmower before it gets too hot out there.  I just wanted to check in before heading out. 

I watched the (about) 6 AM feeding.  Zooey was being so careful.  I felt she could have fed it more (it was still begging when she stopped) but what she does feed is done so much better.

About 10 AM -- Zooey is doing so much better.  About 10 AM Newman brought a bird for them and she went out to get it.  She really took her time making sure it went into the little beak and the little one was getting to swallow it.  Once it couldn't raise its head anymore, then she chowed down.
