Peregrine Update

May 24, 2008 at 2:17 pm Leave a comment

Last month we posted about the peregrine webcam set up on a nest box on top of the elevator run by our local farm co-op.  We got a propapne delivery yesterday and the driver told me that the first egg had hatched.  I checked in on the webcam today just in time to see one of the birds fly in to feed the young one!

Here’s a link to the webcam if you’d like to check them out yourself.  There are still three more eggs in the nest.  We hope to see more hatch soon.

In dog-related news young Audie has been bringing me bits of eggshell he finds from nests in the woods around our house.  He has such a soft mouth he can carry eggs (he did bring me one tiny, blue, unhatched egg) without breaking them.  Last week he also brought me a dead sparrow he found on our porch.  He carried with such care that I think if it had still been alive it could have flown away after he gave it to me.  Here’s a picture of him holding it gently by little more than its feathers.
