More disappointment

In a blog post yesterday, I reported that two of the original five eggs disappeared (removed and/or eaten by the female falcon) from the nest box on the 18th floor of the Capitol.  Unfortunately, it happened again late Saturday and now there are only two eggs remaining.

Hopefully this trend does not continue and there will be something positive to report soon.
