Richmond Falcon Cam

An Egg!

  • April 10th, 2017

The new banded female falcon laid an egg today, Monday April 10th, at 3:23 pm! 

After laying their first egg of the season, Peregrine Falcons typically lay any subsequent eggs in intervals of 48-72 hours. Keep a close watch on the Richmond Falcon Cam Wednesday–Thursday, April 12th–13th, and you may catch the second egg lay! Peregrine Falcons can lay clutches of up to 5 eggs, but in Virginia they most commonly lay 4 eggs. For more information about Peregrine Falcon egg laying, please refer to our new Falcon Cam Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
