If you are interested in Falcon Watching, check out Westar’s Green Team’s Falcon Cam. It lets you watch a pair of Peregrine Falcons and their offspring in a nesting box on the roof of Westar Energy’s headquarters on
in . Topeka
To date there are three eggs in the nest. The third falcon egg arrived Tuesday night. Eggs have arrived in the following order:
1st egg – 3/29 at 3:10 a.m.
2nd egg – 3/31 at 12:50 p.m.
3rd egg – 4/2 at 8:50 p.m.
If that pattern holds true, and there is a fourth egg, we should expect it sometime early on Friday. Incubation typically lasts 29 to 33 days, so we anticipate the first egg to hatch close to the first of May.
