This additional screen captured on Monday, 11 May 2015 at approximately 9:40 a.m., shows only one Peregrine Falcon eyases and two eggs.

As of mid-morning on Monday, only one egg of the three eggs has hatched.   You may also noticed one of the eggs disappeared (there were originally four eggs, but for the past week there has only been three eggs).  It is unknown what happened to the missing egg.

Update (1:35 p.m.):  It appears that still only one egg has hatched (see below).
