Two of the five peregrine eggs have hatched at the Cathedral of Learning nest, as seen during this morning’s feeding.
Here, Dorothy is feeding the first chick while the second one dries off behind the egg at right. That egg has a hole on top and will hatch soon. We can’t see the other two eggs very well because they’re in the shadow beyond Dorothy.
See a slideshow of the first hatching by clicking the photo on yesterday’s blog.
It’s going to be a busy day for Dorothy and E2.
UPDATE, 3:00pm, 23 April 2011: The third egg hatched just before 3:00pm today:
