Yesterday at the Cathedral of Learning peregrine nest, Morela incubated her eggs most of the time but took breaks in the morning and afternoon. This timelapse video gives you an idea of much time she spent on the eggs.
At 9:03am Morela stood up and bowed to an unseen male peregrine who was out of camera view. He never came down to the nest.
In the 6 o’clock hour Morela called but neither Terzo nor Ecco showed up.
Incubation was intermittent and no mate arrived to help. With this sort of treatment, Morela’s eggs are not going to hatch.
