The (other) falcons have eggs, too

Yes, the Peregrine Falcons have five eggs.  While you are enjoying the Peregrine Falcons, remember there is another “falconcam”.  We also have a camera peering into an American Kestrel nestbox here at the NGPC headquarter’s building  (see the location on this old post).  The small falcons have also laid five eggs .
