Second falcon chick hatches this morning

 Monday, May 7, 2018

Among newly scattered eggshells, the female Peregrine Falcon wiggles down to cover her two chicks and three remaining eggs. It’s all unfolding in downtown Manchester, and you can watch it on the live-stream. The eggs normally hatch out one at a time, every 24-48 hours. But this time the first egg hatched yesterday at 4:55pm and the second followed closely, hatching at 10:20am this morning.
