Falcon Cam Update April 11, 2017
The new camera setup was quick so the falcons would be disturbed as little as possible.
The eggs were first discovered on the ledge on March 24 and the earliest date the falcons have ever laid eggs at the Liberty Tower is March 17. Incubation usually starts a few days after the first eggs are laid so incubation likely began somewhere around March 20 to March 24. With an incubation period of 29 to 32 days, hatching could occur starting April 17.

Thanks, Kitten! :eggthumb:

UPDATE!!
The 2017 Falcon Cam has been Discontinued
UPDATE (April 28) -- Due to the nesting location of the falcons, as well as ongoing technical issues with the camera, the 2017 Falcon Cam has been discontinued. While we made a concerted effort to establish a quality view of the scrape and chicks – who do appear to be doing well! – the combination of limited visibility and our desire to allow the nesting season to continue without incident for the birds has led to this decision.
Here's hoping for a better view next year!
========================================
Falcon Cam Update – April 21, 2017
The falcon eggs hatched!


On Saturday, April 15, egg shells could be seen on the ledge, but the female spent almost all her time on the nest preventing a view of what was beneath her. By Wednesday, we were able to get a good view of the chicks and all four eggs have successfully hatched!

The chicks seem to be doing well, and both parents have been very attentive, feeding and keeping the chicks warm. When they are not able to be seen they are safely tucked under the female. She broods the chicks, keeping them warm with her body until they are about a week old and they can maintain the correct body temperature on their own.

She has special featherless brooding patches that allow the warm skin of her body to press right up against the chicks and keep them warm. This behavior is easy to see from above. It looks like she is wiggling quickly back and forth, but she is snuggling her brooding patches down on the chicks.
