Daybreak reveals EGG #2

In low light conditions the cameras automatically switch from color to black and white mode allowing us to see what is going on a little earlier in the morning and a little later at night. About 8 p.m. last night when it got too dark to see, there was still only 1 egg. However, as the sun came up this morning and the cam produced a viewable image the 2nd egg was revealed!!

Perergrines generally lay 4 eggs per clutch and incubation doesn't begin until the last or next to the last egg is laid. The first eggs will be fine without being incubated.
