The First Egg Has Been Laid!
After trying out a few different scrapes in the nest box, the female falcon made her final selection early this evening when she laid the first egg of her clutch. The typical clutch size for a Peregrine Falcon is 3–4, which has been the case for this pair as well. We will continue to watch closely for any subsequent eggs, which usually follow in intervals of 48–72 hours. We look forward to observing the female and male as they take turns incubating and monitoring their productivity over the coming months.
