Updates from the nest box...
|March 23, 2018||Peter Green of Providence Raptors journeys up to the nest box. “Both of our banded adults (together for 3 years) have been displaced by an un-banded pair! So, disappointingly, we’ll never know where they came from. But, at least they are successful breeders – they already have 2 eggs."|
|March 27, 2018||The Providence Peregrine Webcam is live for viewing. There are three eggs now.|
|March 28, 2018||There are now four eggs! Peregrine Falcons incubate their eggs for 28 to 33 days. That means we should have hatchlings by the end of April.|
