It appears the Peregrines have been overcome by sanity and ceased egg production. Five eggs is certainly enough and above normal. Peregrine Falcons nesting at mid-latitudes average about 3.8 eggs per clutch. If you happened to check the webcam during the weather on Sunday, you might have witnessed that five eggs was almost more than the birds could handle in the rain and wind. For a while, a couple of the eggs got loose. Fortunately, Jeanne Hibbert captured some screen shots of the drama which she posted on her Facebook fan page.
At times, it looked as though the birds themselves might be blown away. All five eggs eventually were recovered and are now back where they ought to be. However, it once again illustrates that these birds have to contend with quite a lot during this breeding effort. It is not just fun and games. Now, we will have to wait for about four weeks before any eggs will begin hatching.
