For posterity...

What you don't see:


    Mom doing the "labor" circle...walking around and around and around..
    Pooping in the corner..this is the 3rd time I have seen this so far...how come I've never seen this before!!
    Dad was there for the entire thing, on the ledge.
    Pre labor stuff...



The Reveal...

sky, the nest seems so messy already. I don't remember ever seeing so many feathers when the eggs are laid. Think this is the new dad's doing?

Liz...I wish I knew where the feathers cam from. Somebody on the FB page suggested the falcons were molting. I have very limited knowledge about that subject, but I don't think they would be molting now...Some of the feathers were there when the cam went live. I can't tell if there are more in there now or if the earlier ones have just flipped over and we're seeing the darker side now. Some of the downy looking feathers could be from one of the parents. Sometimes you will see those as the brood patch is forming prior to egg lay.

Mom and dad don't appear to be missing large clumps of feathers, so who knows. Let's hope its not an early molt. Molting uses a lot of energy which should be going to egg production right now.

What does Bob think?

I've been watching for about an hour. She just got up at 11:33 for a few minutes, then laid back down. I recorded, but don't think it was labor. I got a pic and lightened it, still looks like 2 eggs at this time.

Do you know you can back up on this cam? Hover over picture, see the long line hear the word "LIVE", you can back up there.

12:43am. Mom starts chupping. She's at the front of box looking out. Not sure what she was following. Hope everything is okay. She's got a beautiful voice.

12:45am - She's preening now near the box opening, so everything must be fine. And she's now back to eggs. She's been up preening a bit, then back down.

Okay, getting late for me. Time to shut down.

Well, here comes Dad screaming in at 12:51am. What is he doing up and out flying around at this hour?????

I don't know if there are feathers blowing in, or bugs flying around.. Bugs..

He's in box now. Bonding session at 12:54am I'm recording. Have it on close cam. Lots of bugs, I think bugs flying around.

I know this is probably my imagination, but it's almost like he's eating something on the white rock. At least my stupid screen is moving like he's eating and it sounds like it too, but Mom is just standing over scrape preening now. Something must be there. Well, now I'm hearing Dad whining in distance again. So maybe he left some prey for her there.

You know, this freaks me out a little..

Mom's laying back down now - 1:05am.

Maybe that is where the dark feathers are coming from. Maybe they are eating/hunting at night? He was 100% in the box and they were bonding. She was bowing and chupping. I'll keep the cam up for a bit. Have both views up now - long box and up close cam. Very windy right now. There' some kind of feather at the front of box. Maybe the tail of a bird? This is so weird. Because it's dark, screen is pixelating. I'm either hearing really weird noises like maybe a squeaky street name sign blowing in wind, or Dad is out there chirping. Must just be the city noises because Mom is just laying down over her eggs in scrape. Just looked at weather - it's raining, so maybe that's what I'm hearing... wind and rain.

Okay, now I'm shutting down at 1:16am SLC time. 12:16am my time.

Approx 6:35MT, just saw stand off. Dad was on eggs when Mom came back. He did not want to leave and they stood there talking to each other for just about 10 minutes. The way Mom approached eggs, I could not get a count.

Funny - A few males I know (Rochester and Cobb) may have to accommodate a new entry in the long standoff tiercel club.

Just had another switch..this time, he was ready to leave...still 3 eggs...
