Peregine Falcon Activity at the Jersey City Nestbox

From njfishandwildlife.com:

"An egg has been laid! When we first tuned in today the webcam image revealed an egg that had been laid sometime between yesterday afternoon and 7:30 a.m. this morning. The timing is about average - egg laying varies year to year, with last year being one of the latest with the first egg not laid until April 13; in 2008 the first egg was laid around March 21.

Hopefully a new egg will be laid every two days or so until there is a full clutch of three or four (rarely, five). Once the female has finished laying her eggs incubation will begin, and about 32 to 33 days later hatching should occur. We appreciate the support of all our viewers as we begin another season in earnest now that laying has begun. Please remember our work and Check-off for Wildlife when you complete your NJ tax form this year."

The Jersey City Peregrine Webcam streams live video from a nestbox atop 101 Hudson Street between March and July each year. Follow the season on screen. Clicking on the still image will open a new window containing the live video feed when active. The video feed is in Windows Media format.
