We have eggs! The WoodmenLife Tower falcons have laid their first two eggs. According to the time-lapse photos taken by our falcon-cam viewers, it looks like the first egg was laid on Easter morning at approximately 4:00am, and the second eg was laid on Tuesday morning, March 29 between 8 and 10 am. We do hope we will have a few more, so we're keeping a close eye on the nest. In 2015, the resident falcon couple completed their family with 4 eggs.
If you can tell from the photo, it is clear that mom is unbanded, however, we think she has been injured in the past. Side-angle pictures clearly show an injury above her wing. Interestingly enough, Hera,also unbanded and last seen in the nest in 2014, had a similar injury... could it be? In her previous residency, she laid 37 eggs over 9 years, so it very well could be her.
The WoodmenLife Falcon season is well underway. Keep up with it by viewing the WoodmenLife Falcon-Cam and follow the falcons on Twitter.
