Egg #2

As expected, the female Peregrine Falcon laid her second egg late this afternoon.

My best estimate is that it took about 58 hours for the number of eggs to double.  I would anticipate a third egg will be laid late Friday or early Saturday.  Visit the LIVE! streaming video HERE.  Enjoy the show!
