Peregrine Hatch Watch 2015

It has been about a month since the Peregrine Falcons laid their eggs at Nebraska’s Capitol building.  This means it is time to officially issue the hatch watch for 2015.  A Hatch Watch means conditions are favorable for egg hatching to develop over the next several days.  Since it has been about 30 days, hatching might be expected to commence late this week or over the weekend.

If eggs do indeed start hatching, you do not need to take shelter in your basement or an interior room of your dwelling.  All you need to do is watch the live streaming video, enjoy the events as they unfold and cross your fingers the eyases (falcon chicks) survive and thrive.
