A peregrine falcon has laid eggs in a nest atop the Kodak Building in Rochester, NY.
The rooftop nest is part of a program to protect this endangered species. Kodak has a videocam covering the nest with a live feed (well, refreshed every few minutes) to its website. Go here and see for yourself.
My sources tell me that the mom and dad birds take turns sitting on the eggs so you rarely see them together. The mom is called Mariah, and the dad is Kaver. Mariah has a little bit of white over her beak and Kaver doesn’t. That’s one way to tell them apart.
I happened to click on this morning when neither bird was there so I got to see the large eggs. Cool stuff.
