Friday Falcon Update
We’re almost a month into our egg watch! We’ll hopefully be seeing our first eyass (baby falcon) within the next couple of weeks. Although we’ve gotten some snow, don’t worry. Peregrine falcons are very capable of incubating their eggs during inclement weather.
Though it can be a challenge, eggs are laid in late winter and are incubated for four to five weeks; there’s plenty of food for the eyasses come spring. A peregrine falcon’s diet typically consists of other birds, such as starlings, pigeons, blackbirds, jays, shorebirds, and waterfowl. They will rarely hunt mammals, reptiles or insects.
Keep updated with our falcons on our live Falcon Cam and join us in the egg watch until the first hatchling arrives!
