I think the second egg crack in the 9:30 picture is actually one of Beauty's chest feathers. So far I've only seen one for sure broken egg.  I'm not saying the outcome will be any different than what we're all thinking, but they're still incubating, so who the heck knows.

When I was reading Mark Nash's thoughts earlier other nests that have gone awry came to mind...like Kathy Q & Kinney...one of the most reliable nests losing all but one eyas to...we don't even know what.

But, being the Pollyanna that I am, I had commented to someone yesterday...at least the population has rebounded well enough that the one unsuccessful nest isn't a tragedy.  20 years ago a year like this could have completely derailed the recovery effort.

I agree, it is so hard to tell exactly what is happening.  I am watching the streaming video and everytime B or A show the eggs, I go to the cameras with still images or the archive viewer to get a better look.  Mother nature is going to do what she wants and we just have to be thankful we have this window to view it in all its beauty.

Ok now I'm confused.  confused   Beauty was off the eggs around 10:25 a.m.  I have looked at views of the eggs from all three cameras and only see 1 egg that is cracked.  The other two still look intact.  Oh the anxiety, still watching and praying.   pray

I am not sure how to post pictures from rfalconcam and am at work so I can't take the time to learn right now.

But camera 3 at 9:30 this morning shows two eggs with significant cracks, but not hatching.

Could someone please post this picture.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Here are the details of yesterday's crazy lunch time falcon watch.  First there was the crazy lady going out the inside of the driveway.  stupid  That should have been my first clue to stay away.  Then after entering the complex, just as you turn to circle the building there were numerous (about 60-70) Canada Geese grazing in the grass and crossing the road.  Suddenly the geese all take flight and fly over my car, of course doing what birds naturally do when they fly over cars, crap on them.   mini-bird  I then noticed what startled the geese, there were three white tail deer running across the lawn, right in front of my car.  The remainder of my watch was uneventful.  No Pefa sighted.

Hi Carol P.

Yes, I am out here, but very rarely do I have chance to check the forum.  I'd be more than happy to contribute what I know about the early years of the Rochester Falcons.  Just give me a call or send me a text, I don't get to the board very much.

You guys are the best.  One of my co-workers was telling me today that a baby panda was born and it was the first in the U.S.  Obviously I knew that was wrong.  Then another co-worker was Googling Panda's and had information on panda's in China.  I had to get their facts straight and immediately found the information here.  You are the best. thumbsup

I'll be busy all day Saturday saving the citizens of Monroe County's southeast quadrant (mostly from themselves laugh), but I'll be there on Sunday.

I hope no one tries to jump out of your ambulance.   stupid

Kathy O. sent an email last night about a show at the Strasenburgh Planetarium this weekend titled "The Falcons of Toronto."  It will be showing at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday July 17.  Here is the describition from the Planetarium's website.

THE FALCONS OF TORONTO
Thirty years ago, peregrine falcons faced extinction in North America when DDT entered the food chain and killed their young. Now these champions of the sky have re-established themselves and some have forsaken the countryside to live in the city. These intrepid newcomers nest on cliffs of concrete and hunt in canyons of steel and glass. But while the city is a good provider, there are also hidden dangers in the urban jungle. An NHK Production


I will be attending the Saturday show, if anyone else wants to go, just let me know.
Tickets are:  $10 for adults,  $9 for senior citizens, and $8 for children.

MAK and Sue want to go

Bill and I want to go too. Can we buy tickets there that night or is it better to buy online now?

I am planning on buying tickets at the door.  I don't think it will be a "sold out" show.   She everyone tomorrow morning.

I will be at the Saturday morning breakfast.  I have Friday night and the weekend off from work, so I will probably be around this weekend.
