7:45pm  -Poor Mom... during the past 2 hours or so, there have been several helicopters in very close proximity to the nest/building (2 news and 3 police that I know of).  She has been calling on and off.
I have not had a peek at the eggs in several days, but I have noticed her mate has taken his turn incubating (once today and once yesterday - that I saw... didn't see the switch - just saw who was incubating).

Hi PattiO - the disturbance in Baltimore City - protests about the man who was critically injured after he was arrested (who later died)
(Unfortunately, the protests were peaceful - it was the troublemakers - or what the Mayor called "hooligans, from out-of-town" who caused the problems; it was complicated by a large crowd at a baseball game at  Camden Yards (Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston).)

We have a hatch!  Don't know what time... this picture is from 1:52pm.  Note, the little cutie is over to the right... not under Mom.

Here's a video of the hatch (courtesy of Chesapeake Conservancy and the Baltimore Sun):
http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bal-first-egg-hatches-for-light-street-falcons-20150518-premiumvideo.html

Added - After the first hatch, Mom seemed to be confused ...she started dragging the new chick - first to the lower right of the scrape, then she rolled the eggs to the chick and moved the whole lot more to the center.  Next, she(?) dragged the chick to the lower left, then back to the center with the eggs.
A little later, Dad(?)(at this point I couldn't tell them apart)... arrived with a bird for dinner.  The chick was kind of on its back leaning against the eggs - Mom tried to feed it a few bites in this position and I think it had a little to eat.  Chick wasn't able to right itself.  Mom ate and then schmushed down and began incubating the new chick and the eggs.

Here's a picture taken 5-18-15- Mom preparing dinner - chick on his back!:

2nd hatch was in view this morning when I checked in on the cam!

(Changes made to above post.  Also, during the first hatch, it seemed as if Mom may have been "helping" the chick #1 come out of the shell.  Hopefully, no damage was done to the new one)

1:57pm - The little ones finally managed to scoot over to be fed... the one on the far right looks like he conked out, but I think he did get a bite.  The middle one hasn't had any at this feeding yet.  The one on the far left has had a good meal. No bonking!
