Peregrine eggs ready to hatch!

April 22, 2012 in In the Nest Box

As of late afternoon, Saturday, April 21, the Peregrines continue to incubate the 4 eggs in the nest box.  For a moment, the 4 eggs were left unattended during the incubation change over time.  This provides all of us with a nice clear view of the 4 brownish colored eggs.  They appear to be in excellent shape.  Based on the fourth and final egg being laid on Saturday, March 24th, Tom French at Mass Wildlife estimated an approximate incubation period of 28 days with a projection that chicks will hatch today or over the next few days.  Stay tuned to the New Balance webcam!
