Based on our experience with Madame X in 2014, we have high hopes to see (and yes, actually *see*) new eggs by the end of the week!Thursday, May 25, 2017 - No small white ball of fluff has followed the appearance of a broken egg shell on May 16, but Lily is still faithfully in the incubating position at the east end of the nest ledge.If you go to our facebook page, one of our members posted a video capture of Lily removing the shell.
Our thanks to the avid watchers who keep an eye on the camera and post pictures to our facebook group!

The fact that she chose the old scrape as the most comfortable place to shelter from the storm is quite encouraging to falcon watchers, who have hopes that this year she will choose to lay her eggs in this location that is more visible to our cameras.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that the far end of the scrape gets warm morning sunlight. Monday, January 30, 2017 - We continue to catch occasional glimpses of our two adult birds on the webcam.
Falcon watchers are encouraged to see them both repeatedly poking around the original 1995-2014 scrape, in the far corner.
It seems quite likely that they will try this location for their second clutch.
Friday, April 28, 2017 - Volunteers needed in June/July for our on-street watch. You choose your own 2-hour shifts from the online listing of available volunteer shifts. All we ask is that you e-mail us to register, attend a (2 hour) orientation meeting (to be announced, on a weekday evening early in June), and please show up for your shift(s) (or let us know at least a day ahead of time if you need to cancel). Oh, and if you have binoculars, that would be good! Judging by the activity we have seen in the last few days, we think laying may have begun Saturday or Sunday.
