Finally! – an egg

To be honest, I was beginning to wonder whether the Peregrine Falcons were going to breed this year.  As I have mentioned, the birds had the first egg on 26 March last year.  It is not surprising that activity is a bit later this year, but going on more than two week later was feeling a little off.   Plus, the Woodmen Peregrine Falcons had already completed their four egg clutch several days ago.   I guess the bottom line is our birds play by their own rules.  We will hopefully see another egg in a couple days.
