Falcon hatching

The Kodak Birdcam falcons have 3 hatchlings, with 3 more eggs to go. They raised 5 young each of the last 3 years, but this is the first time they've had 6 eggs.

One egg hatched Saturday and two more today. I haven't caught an actual hatching yet, but I've gotten peeks at an eyas when a parent was repositioning on the nest. Fuzzy eyas pictures can be seen on the Yahoo discussion group. (Kodak had to cut back their support for the birdcam, and their discussion board is one thing that went.)
