Then There Were Four! Four Eggs for Beauty and Dot.ca!

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021
Beauty Laid Her 4th Egg at 9:05 pm

There were a lot of falcon fans watching Beauty on Rfalconcam’s Streaming Video when she laid her 4th egg at 9:05 pm. Her average is four eggs, but we’ll have to wait to see if she lays a 5th egg this year. If she does, it would be due on 4/10 at approximately 6:00 am.

Hard incubation should begin now, so we’ll be seeing Beauty and Dot.ca taking turns on the eggs.

Four Eggs in a Row

Beauty and Dot.ca’s 3rd Egg Arrived Early This Afternoon!

Beauty Lays Her 3rd Egg at 1:06 pm

Rochester Falcon Beauty laid her 3rd egg at 1:06 pm this afternoon. She left shortly after laying it and Dot.ca arrived to check out the new arrival. Hard incubation will usually start after the 2nd to last egg is laid.

If she lays a 4th egg, it should be on 4/7 at approximately 10:00 pm (using her average of 57 hours between eggs).

Rochester Falcon Watchers have been downtown watching for the intruder. So far it’s been quiet. Some on-line watchers have posted that Beauty has been agitated and flown off in a hurry. Migration is happening right now and many raptors have been moving through the area. Beauty and Dot.ca will defend their territory and chase off any birds that come too close. We’re hoping that the intruder has moved on, but we’ll keep watching.

Dot.ca Takes His Turn on the Eggs

After a Long Wait, Beauty Has Laid her 2nd Egg!

Beauty & Dot.ca’s 2nd Egg Arrives at 6:05 am, Saturday Morning

After dealing with an intruder over the past week, Beauty has finally laid her 2nd egg. She usually averages 57 hrs between eggs. It took twice that time for her to lay her 2nd egg. This was due to the 3rd falcon attempting to take her territory.

Shortly after she laid the egg, Dot.ca came in with her breakfast and took his turn on the eggs. When it comes to incubating his eggs, he is very willing.

If all goes well, we could see a 3rd egg on Monday afternoon. Crossing talons!
