If you read the comments on my last peregrine blog entry you'll see that Lauren & MJED were ahead of me this morning and saw Dorothy feeding four chicks. All four eggs have hatched. Yay!
When I got to work I pulled the motion detection photos from the webcam and found out two things: The last chick hatched at almost exactly 8:00pm last night, and this morning's breakfast was a Baltimore oriole.
Meanwhile, many of you commented that you've seen two chicks at Gulf Tower. I haven't been able to see two yet and sure would like to confirm it. Tasha has fooled me every step of the way this year.
