Great news about the 4th egg for Newman and Zooey!  Gotta be quick on the rewind to catch the changeover.  The second camera that's always focused close up on the next box is a big help.

Sure hope RRP has the owl deterrent measures in place again.  Anybody know about this?

Oh Shep, so sad to lose a peregrine at any time, but from human cause, extra bad.

At GSB, Newman and Zooey are taking turns incubating their 4 eggs.

Nora, raptors in general have difficult lives wherever they live. Many hazards and dangers. So grateful to RRP and all the other organizations that work to promote and protect them.

Colorful sunrise here this morning, and several exits and entrances by Newman and Zooey between about 6:00 and 6:45 on the rewind.  Don't miss the really tender foot-roll of the eggs by one of the pair.

I can't tell which is which since Zooey seems to have lost her rusty feathers, unless they are side by side, then Zooey is larger.  In the pic, the bird on the box rim didn't stay.

I'd say Zooey is sitting waiting and Newman is on the eggs.  She's still got a little brownish cast to her and Newman is in that male head lowered "oh darn she's back" look.  ;)

Missed pics yesterday because the live feed was down. Early this morning, all is well at the nest box, with a changeover at about 7:00.

Hi Nora and Shep. It is so soothing watching the nest box and Mississippi River from the live cam.  Sad news about the Berkeley falcon.  People in CA drive like maniacs.

The visitor at GSB makes me think about Chance.  Wondering how she is and if she will return to GSB.

Zooey and Newman seems to be doing everything right. All four eggs still in the nest box, and they swap incubation duty regularly.  Hoping for a successful hatch in a few weeks.

Seems like great news that so many peregrine pairs have 4 eggs this year.
