Time, decreasing probabilities and hope

So here we are on 12 May and there are no obvious signs either of the two remaining Peregrine Falcon eggs are hatching.   I originally stated I expected hatching would commence and/or occur during 7-12 May.  Over the weekend (7-8 May), the female disposed/ate three of the original five eggs (see this post and this post for more details).  Ally, the female falcon, and occasionally the male have continued incubating the two eggs leaving hope that a fluffball would emerge

At the moment 19/K is parked on something (egg/chick) in the nestbox in a patch of sunshine.
Can't see any eggshells but he looks perfectly content.  Also no updates posted on their twitter or blog feeds.

Think this is Alley given the size and distance distortion with the camera but whomever it is, they were taking great care of these two eggs this morning.

Touchdown! Touchdown! Touchdown!

Joel Jorgensen  May 17, 2016     Nongame Bird Blog

Earlier today (5/16) I posted a blog stating the game was all but over.  The apparent facts were indisputable and we were at the losing end.  The only chance was throwing a Hail Mary pass in desperation.  Beating the odds, our team came down with the ball only to score the winning touchdown.  In other words, one of the Peregrine Falcon eggs hatched late Monday evening.

That chick looks to be doing well - nice to see!!  Last year's chick - Orozco - did quite well as I recall, hopefully (knock on wood) this little tot will do likewise.

Chick is 5 days old, so halfway to being able to thermoregulate which is always the first hurdle for hatchlings.  Some rain forecasted to be on the way (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/Lincoln+NE+USNE0283:1:US) but it seems to be for thunderstorms so the POP could change depending on the daily temperatures it looks like ... fingers crossed the weather forecasters are overly optimistic about the precipitation for the next month ...
