Some years back I read about a couple of Peregrine Falcons that nest on top of a building in Jersey City, NJ. I was intrigued and have been following them ever since. (I am a Jersey girl at heart.)

Within the last week the female has laid four eggs. At least it looks like four to me. Anyway, check out the site and be sure and read the Nest Box News.

It's exciting when the eggs start hatching, but every year there's some kind of disaster. I believe it was last year that only one baby survived. The site is maintained by the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife.

I feel like a grandmother when the eggs start hatching. :)


  1. I can imagine how you feel, Betty. You are such a kind person.

  2. Oh, I remember seeing them in the news! And, I believe there is also a nesting pair on the building in New York City where Jackie O. used to live.

    I'm crazy about babies...all babies. I'll have to show these to Camille tomorrow morning when she's cuddling with me.

    Check out my latest blog entry. I've had an epiphany!
