Harrisburg Peregrine Falcons Produce Clutch Of Eggs

The pair of peregrine falcons that nest on a ledge of DEP's headquarters in Harrisburg have produced three eggs so far.  The first egg arrived March 14.  The female typically lays an egg every other day until the "clutch" is complete.
Incubation time increases with the addition of each egg. The full clutch will be warmed continuously until hatching begins, typically around Mother's Day in May.  The fledglings usually take their first flights around Father's Day in June.
Watch the drama unfold in high definition live on DEP's Falcon Cam webpage and follow the falcons on Twitter.
