#FalconWatch2024: Peregrine Falcon Wins Easter Egg Hunt

Family traditions are important, especially on holidays. Some go to church, some eat pounds of chocolate and some fall asleep watching PBS (don’t ask). This Easter, our favorite falcon family at 55 Water St. decided to partake in the festivities and created an egg hunt all their own. Last we checked before we logged off on Friday afternoon, there were two eggs in the nest. But lo and behold, by Monday morning we had three eggs — an Easter miracle!

According to the Audubon Society, peregrine falcons typically lay three to four eggs and the incubation period is anywhere from 32 to 35 days. You can expect to see the dad on the cam, too; the male brings food for the female during incubation. Good man. Stay tuned for more updates on 55 Water St.’s first family.
