Nestbox News
April 23, 2016: It’s a mystery
It’s been almost a week since Egg Number One appeared in the nest, thanks to 41/AX. Both adults were seen on camera on that day (Sunday, April 17), and the female spent a lot of time incubating and brooding in the first two days. According to peregrine falcon biology, she should have laid Egg 2 on Tuesday, and Egg 3 on Thursday, but none of that has happened. We don’t know why, but disruptions in the laying and incubating processes are usually the result of a shake-up in the pair. For example, if an intruding male or female challenges the pair for their territory, it could lead to injuries from fighting or colliding with structures. If such a fight occurred and the male (who was unbanded and therefore we don’t know his individual identity) lost, the winning male would take over the territory but might not help with the current nesting.
We do not know if this has happened in Jersey City, but the pair has been seen on camera only sporadically (Sunday, Wednesday, Friday). The female has not laid any more eggs nor taken care of the Egg 1; therefore the first and only egg is probably not viable anymore. Furthermore, we don’t know if there is a new male and, if so, they have some bonding to do before trying again. It’s a mystery for now, but we are still hoping for a positive outcome this season.

Nestbox News
April 29: Moving On
With high hopes of salvaging this nesting season, today Kathy Clark visited 101 Hudson St. and removed the lone egg from the nestbox. We could tell that 41/AX would no longer incubate it after allowing it to sit there for some time. It is still a mystery as to telling what happened to the old unbanded male. But, there is a new male hanging around. Removing the egg will allow her to move on and accept the new male as her new mate. It will be interesting to see what plays out in the next couple weeks.

According to the website, the cam will be back online any day now. I hope this year will be a much better one at this nest.

A couple of updates on Jersey City birds:

Ivy, banded 79/AN, was sighted again in March of 2016 in the Regent Park area of Toronto. When I searched for Regent Park, I discovered that it is not a park, but is actually a large housing project built in the 1940s.

A male born at the Jersey City nest in 2009, banded 72/W, had nested at New York Presbyterian Hospital in 2014 and 2015. Sadly, he was euthanized in December 2015 after he was found with a serious wing injury.

A female born at the Jersey City nest in 2009, banded A/11, has been nesting at the Middle River power plant in Maryland. She was found injured, treated and released in Maryland in September 2016.
