LIFE BURSTS OUT!
April 17, 2022  EASTER SONday

7.30 am I see a piece of shell
Then I see another piece of shell
8.11 am  I saw the new chick - on its back - BRIEFLY

9.20 she tried to feed it but left with the prey he brot.

She is not acting like an experienced female.

Thats my reaction too. Not an experienced mom.
This is DEFINITELY her first brood.
AFTER she flew out with prey, the chick tried to sit up.  :)

 2022 falcon cam season!
The chicks were recently banded. Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) attach a leg band to each chick with a unique color, letters, and number combination. This identifying information is then entered into a database along with each bird's gender, date of hatching and nesting place. This database is available for all departments of fish and wildlife in North America as a way to track and identify the falcons.
