Egg #3

The Peregrine Falcons welcomed egg #3 Saturday night.

I wasn’t sure any more eggs were coming since it had been so long since the second one was laid.  Jeanne Hibbert provided specific data about the timing of this year’s eggs on the Facebook page, Peregrine Falcons Lincoln NE.   The period between the first and second egg was 60.5 hours and it jumped to 97.5 hours (slightly more than 4 days) between the second and third egg.  This is a notably long intervening period between the last two eggs.  Thanks to Jeanne for collecting and providing this information.

Speculation and prediction is proving to be increasing futile with this pair as they continue play by their own rules. I’m to the point where I am just going sit back and see what happens.   To see what happens, visit our Falconcam by clicking HERE.

Good birding!
