Only Three Eggs Remain in the Times Square Nest Box – 4/28/18

April 28th, 2018

Sadly, one of Beauty and Dot.ca’s eggs was removed from the nest box this afternoon. It’s possible it was not viable, or may have been damaged in some way.

There are still three eggs remaining, that should hatch soon. We’re looking forward to being able to watch three healthy eyases thrive under the care of their parents, Beauty and Dot.ca.

Egg #4 Has Arrived for Rochester Falcons Beauty & Dot.ca – 4/3/18

April 3rd, 2018

Sometime early this morning, Beauty laid her 4th egg in the nest box on top of the Times Square Bldg. I believe it happened around 4:30 am.

Dot.ca came in at 6:36 am with breakfast for Beauty. That’s when we got our first look at all four eggs!

Happy Easter! An Early 3rd Egg for Beauty and Dot.ca! – 3/31/18

April 1st, 2018

A third egg arrived a little earlier than we expected Saturday afternoon at 5:37 pm. Beauty usually averages between 58-59 hours between eggs. It was only 54 hours between her 2nd and 3rd egg. Nothing is ever certain in the world of the Peregrine Falcon! :)

Easter morning Dot.ca brought in breakfast for Beauty and we had a nice look at their three eggs before he covered them.

If Beauty lays a 4th egg, it should arrive sometime late Monday evening or??? Who knows! We’ll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned!

Happy Easter! May it be a peaceful one!

Rochester Falcons Beauty & Dot.ca’s First Egg Has Arrived! 3/27/18

March 27th, 2018

If you fell asleep last night before midnight, you missed the arrival of Beauty and Dot.ca’s first egg of 2018! We had our first view of the newly arrived egg at 12:02 am. Of course we’re all very egg-cited to see it this morning. It’s a sure sign of Spring!!!
