WoodmenLife Sees Four Eggs Again This Year
Third time’s the charm! For the third year in a row, Chayton has laid four eggs atop the WoodmenLife Tower. She is now sitting on them, making it very unlikely that she will lay a fifth. She and her partner, Mintaka, will take turns incubating the eggs and hunting smaller birds for food.
The incubation period is approximately 30 days. We can expect our eyasses (baby falcons) to hatch starting the first week of May. The hatchlings will emerge over a series of a few days, from the first laid egg to the last.
The hatchlings will stay in the nest five to six weeks after they emerge, getting fed by their parents and developing their feathers for flight. They grow and change very quickly.
For now, it is just a waiting game to see when these little birds make their way into the world. Keep your eyes on our Falcon Cam as the time draws closer.
