Usually, when you check the nest... it's empty!  I finally found one of their 'hiding places.'  I think they like to hang out next to the building and all the way down the ledge...



Pic from earlier today... I saw the chick on our right by the ledge walk out from where the arrow is!

The 'little' ones on this nest are going to fledge SOON... so I drove downtown (Ballamer, i.e., Baltimore) early this morning... it was still too dark, pouring rain, so I drove around the block a couple of times and came home!  Maybe I'll try again tomorrow morning... just not so early!!! cool

One egg so far here for 2016.... she kinda looks like she's trying to lay one right now... but not sure.  She could just be warm.

 crying    Sad news:
2 chicks hatched on 4-23, 1 hatched on 4-24-16.  Unfortunately, when Mom brought a prey to the chicks yesterday (approx. 11:23am), she placed the prey on the youngest chick and we lost him.  Here's a pic of that feeding.

The 4th Peregrine Falcon chick hatched late yesterday afternoon (that's when it was first seen) - so we have 2 hatched on 4-23, 1 on 4-24 (it is believed that's the one who died)... so they are 3 - 3 1/2 days apart in age.  The new one is soooo teeny! 
But... I watched a feed this morning and that wee one is feisty!  He managed to get right in front and grabbed a few bites, looked like he fell asleep before the feed was over!   mhihi
Here's a tape by Ches Conserv of the feeding:

Thanks for the updates, Patti and Bonnie - and keeping fingers crossed that #4 will be feisty enough - and it does look as if s/he is off to a good start!
