Good Morning Loza! The wind here in Wilmington today is SO BAD! I pray the Falcon's and all other Birds lay low, and stay safe.

loza - Nice catch of the changeover this morning!

Faith - You're right about the wind. It's really brutal. I'm just glad that the falcons have a nest box sheltered from the wind.

:egg19: Mom is rather restless this afternoon. When I first looked in, she was busy picking pebbles. Then she shuggled the eggs and turned, and shuggled some more. I've been watching about 8 minutes, and she has made a 360 degree turn, now.

Both falcons spent part of the day chasing intruders. They seem to switch off on determined interlopers. Two falcons taking turns can outlast a single intruder, and one stays free to sit on the eggs.

I just got short glimpses of the action - most was blocked by buildings. Here's a short clip, regular speed and slo-motion. That's Trinity on the attack. Sorry about the quality - long way away hand-held.

Thanks for your report, Dave. I had hoped the intruder(s) would have given up by now. Good job on the video and also good job by Trinity.

Correction to my last post. Turns out that I managed to film a crow attacking an eagle. It was far away and during the intruder chases, so I thought I had a falcon.

Sorry 'bout that. I'll leave it there and re-title it "Crow attacks eagle, videographer eats crow"

No problem Dave. Your reports are always appreciated. :-) I did tune into the cam last night around 7 to see Red Girl calmly sitting on the eggs. I'd guess there's about a week to wait until there are a bunch of little mouths to feed.

:egglaugh": I love the new title, Dave!

I just checked the Facebook page and it sounds as if the first hatch is fast approaching! Kim mentioned that she thought that "hatching would start April 8-11 so any day now we could be seeing some little white fuzz balls!!!"

I also checked the nest box and Trinity (I believe) is on nest duty.

Thanks for the pictures, Loza. Tuned into the cam about five minutes ago, and pretty sure it was Trinity on the eggs.

Still waiting to see a hatch here. Trinity and Red Girl have been doing a great job keeping all the eggs covered and out of sight.
