Three Eggs Confirmed!

We are finally able to confirm that there are at least three eggs in this year’s clutch! In the video below, three distinct eggs are visible as the female Peregrine Falcon shifts her incubating position. 

Nailing down a hatch date is still difficult as we have not yet ruled out the possibility that there could be a fourth egg. However, if there are indeed just three eggs, we will very likely see the hatching begin April 21-24, as incubation would have most likely begun when the second egg was laid. If there are more eggs than these three, the onset of hatching will be later, but since we don’t know when exactly the third egg was laid, that hatch date window is less predictable.
