One thing about this warm weather, it does make the adults more active - the eggs don't need to be incubated so tightly or they will be too warm so there is always a lot of position changes which are easy to mistake for the kinds of spinning we see adults on hatching chicks do.  The light makes a very deep shadow as well so it is hard to see fine detail at times though there is no mistaking an extra patch of fuzzy white when they arrive.

We still have all 4 eggs in place as Beatrix got up to stretch her legs. Then back to the task at hand.

Today is day 30 for incubation, mostly they hatch between 32 and 34 days so we over the weekend is most likely.  As I recall, Beatrix's last batch all hatched out overnight so if you can only check the forum once a day, mornings are likely your best bet for new news.

We have our first hatch - at least one chick today and surprise, surprise, Ty was the one who was on the tot when s/he made his appearance.  He wouldn't get off when Beatrix came to relieve him and she didn't do a Princess and push him off.  She hung out a bit in the box and when it was obvious he wasn't going anywhere, she left and came back twice more over the next couple of hours.  Then the eggshell appeared from under Ty, he did a wee bit of nibbling and then Beatrix arrived and he relinquished their chick and the 3 other eggs to her.  Chick wasn't very old, not a bright white yet so the feathers weren't completely dry yet.  Expect we should have a full house by Monday - last year all of Beatrix's eggs hatched out within 36/48 hours of each other.

How nice to hear that Ty was given an opportunity to experience the first hatch. Itís just so sweet whenever a female falcon allows the male to participate - especially to the extent that Beatrix allowed for their first hatch. :D

This would be a great pair to watch on a cam!
